|Double-fisting the popsicles and pretzels|
|Grandma got her to eat salad last week!|
1) She's so much more likely to eat the healthy stuff if Mommy feeds it to her while it's being prepared. Slip her chunks of cantaloupe or bites of strawberry as we're preparing them at the counter or sink before supper and she gobbles them down.
2) She's the master of her own universe and wants the WHOLE banana or the ENTIRE pear or the corn ON the cob, not just little cut up bites. If she can handle holding the whole thing, we'll give it to her that way because the allure of being the boss of the food makes her happy to eat it.
3) Cook the veggies into her food. Roasted red pepper sauce instead of jarred Alfredo. Veggies on the pizza or in the meatballs. Getting Felicity her fruits and veggies is making our whole family healthier!
In this battle of wills, Mommy will overcome and Felicity will learn to love the greens. And the rest of the rainbow, too.
