Hello Moms out there! You know what I mean when I say - we, Moms, will do WHATEVER it takes to inspire our kids to eat vegetables!
I love motivating my daughters to try raw produce and enjoy teaching them the benefits of what they eat. We have a "I will try anything once" rule in our house and we venture into a "Guess all ingredients" game when we drink home made smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. Yesterday, we launched an animal challenge made from veggies and fruits. It was AWESOME! I bought mini bamboo sticks (you can use toothpicks instead) and I put out a big plate of fruits and vegetables in front of the girls...It was so much fun - girls were at it for over an hour, creating, assembling, making each other laugh, stealing ingredients from one another, pretending they were on a live show.... It was PRICELESS! The coolest thing is that they ate half the plate while making their masterpieces...Sofi, the oldest one, lost the competition though as she ate her creation before it could be judged! She Ate The DOG!
It is so fascinating how creative those little minds are and things they say when they are inventing! Girls insisted on 2nd round of challenge today - so we did it again! It was a Fun, Inspiring and Just a Super Cool Evening!
