There are some VERY picky eaters in our house! Especially when it comes to eating fruits and vegetables.
I read somewhere that you are supposed to just keep offering them, but every time something other than butter noodles, hot dogs, or chicken fingers end up on her plate Lyla is quick to say “No thank you mama. It’s just not for me.” Which is completely adorable that at least she is polite, but it’s crazy frustrating because I want her to eat things that are good for her body… And I don’t want to go to war over every meal… AND, probably most importantly I want her to have a healthy relationship with food.
We eat dinner as a family around 6:45 at night so the girls have a snack in the afternoon. I’m trying to find a way to try to get ANY nutrients into them…
BANANA OATMEAL SMOOTHIE
1/2 CUP ROLLED OATS
1 WHOLE BANANA
1 CUP UN-SWEETEND VANILLA ALMOND MILK
1 CUP BLUBERRIES
She got really excited over the fact that it was PURPLE! And I let her use a straw which is always a plus.
She took like 4 sips.
I’m calling that a success.
