This Mama’s Genius Idea Turns Kids Into Healthy Eaters
I guess you could say that I'm a lucky mom because my boy will eat pretty much anything. Brussels sprouts? Yep. Spinach? You bet. Asparagus? He loves it.
I don't know if it's true that what a woman eats during her pregnancy is what her child will tend to gravitate toward when they're older, but it seems to be true for my boy. John loves Thai and Mexican and every type of vegetable you could imagine, all of which I ate when he was growing inside of me.
If you're not so lucky when it comes to your kids eating the foods you want them to and you're at your wit's end because you feel like you've tried everything, maybe try this genius idea.
There's a good chance your kid is obsessed with some cartoon character. For my son, it's Marshall from PAW Patrol. You know that if your child is in love with a character, you can sometimes convince them to eat something or do something if they think the character they love would do the same.
Here’s my best parenting hack. You know how kids always want Paw Patrol yogurt or Disney waffles or whatever? Bring your own stickers to the grocery store and start sticking. Today we’re having Winnie the Pooh brand spaghetti squash. It goes perfectly with Toy Story broccoli.
