Poking Fun





So, Miss O has been terrible about eating her fruits lately. I decided that maybe a little poking would make eating them more fun, so the other day we tried this: I gave each of the kids a tooth pick and a bowl of grapes. They had fun poking the grapes and popping them into their mouths. Miss O even decided her's was a lollipop and was licking it! :) Then she decided to put a grape on each end and eat it that way. Later, we tried it with blueberries, but I can picture it with other foods too (cheese, bananas, etc). This may not be appropriate for the younger ages due to the sharp toothpicks, but for my 3 and 4 year old, it was a lot of fun, and a great way to spice up meal time. Oh, and don't mind the shirtlessness of the kids; it's been hot around here!

Must, must try this!! Maddie has become increasingly picky about her food and this may be just what we need. Can't wait to try it out. Thanks!

Isn't it great how children will eat things if it looks new and exciting!

I wanted to let you know I've given you an award at my blog :)

Funny, I bought toothpicks with the frilly ends yesterday because R thinks they are beautiful and I thought they might jazz up mealtime!
