So, here is what you need to know: my kids are NOT good eaters. I mean this in a relative fashion, of course. There are roughly 4 things they will definitely eat: grilled cheese, chicken (nuggets of course), soup (don’t get excited, I mean the Dora variety), and peanut butter sandwiches. This does not include the chips, cookies, or snacks that will always be a favorite. ‘Chip’ was among the first 20 words both kids could say. Vegetables aren’t even an option (I put them on their plates regularly, but to no avail)
But today, a small miracle. I (in an attempt to get all the fruit I need) have taken to making fruit smoothies. After weeks of flat out refusing to even try it, both Cooper and Delaney agreed to a ‘sip’. That sip turned into a second and a third and a fourth. The mix of seeing me drinking it for weeks and toddler curiosity worked in my favor.
I’m so excited….with multiple sips, I managed to get raspberries, blueberries, bananas, strawberries, cherries and pomegranates into their little bodies.
Just another thing to be grateful for!
