Sometimes, the saying, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” is VERY obvious in our household. Growing up, I ate about 15 different items about half of those were breakfast foods. I didn’t like pizza, vegetables (not many kids do?!), spaghetti, cheeseburgers and most everything else. But that was normal to me and I didn’t know that people ate so many other things. Well… my child is just like me. She eats just about nothing. NOTHING! Yesterday, I decided to try to trick her. We were out of the one kind of yogurt she will eat so I colored the vanilla yogurt purple. I didn’t think she would fall for it but she LOVED it. In fact, our son then asked for red yogurt. They had so much fun making the colored yogurt. No judgement either- we do put a few M&M’s in it to get her to eat it.
I know others have food battles. Wonder what other tricks parents use?
Just an idea for other parents…I have been following a blog: http://learntolovefood.com/. Cute ideas on for being creative with eating time.
