It’s no secret that I have a picky eater. And by picky I mean doesn’t eat anything but cereal and bread. Nothing else. I don’t think he has eaten a fruit or veggie in 2 years. I know what you are thinking, just make him. Of course we’ve tried that, we’ve tried everything. But this kid won’t budge.
Meals are a constant struggle. If it was up to him he would never eat. I sometimes wonder where he came from. I could eat all day long.
Our goal over the past few months has been to get him to eat apple sauce at each meal. He normally takes a few spoonfuls and then stops eating. So to get him to eat more we use this dice trick. Once he’s done eating we make him roll the dice to see how many more scoops he needs to eat. If he rolls a 1 he is happy, if he rolls a 6 then I’m happy. It turns it into a bit of a game and it really works.
I’m always on the hunt for healthier food options. Of course both my boys are chip junkies. So I was pretty excited to hear that Green Giant’s very giant surprise was their new veggie chips. You can check out the Green Giant Facebook page here.
My family tried the Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips. I normally buy the healthier option foods only for the kids. But my husband and I would absolutely buy these for ourselves. The Zesty Cheddar was a huge hit with everyone. The kids polished off the entire bag before I even realized it.
Now it’s not like giving your kid carrot sticks to snack on, but these chips are a healthier option than regular chips (40% less fat and 17 grams of whole grain per serving). The boys won’t be getting these chips on a daily basis, but I will absolutely buy them for birthday parties, movie nights, parties, etc.
