I have one little girl who is an extremely picky eater, and by picky I mean she wants nothing but junk food. 99% of the time she won’t even try something that she *thinks* she won’t like. Dinner time is a constant struggle. We’ve had more arguments over dinner than I care to remember.
Last week, I hosted a Tastefully Simple party at my home. You can imagine my shock when the dips were passed around and my child tried a spinach dip, a jalapeno dip, and fresh carrots with onion dip and LIKED them! Seriously, you could have picked me up off the floor. Who was this child and what has she done with my Shaylie?
This got the mama wheels in my brain turning. I could get her to eat healthy snacks by putting them in dip form. YES! So what did I do, I ordered dips from Tastefully Simple. I went online and found even more healthy dip recipes. I added some fresh vegetables to my grocery list.
It’s still too soon to tell if we’ve made real progress here, but so far it’s working!
Do you have picky eaters? How do you incorporate healthy foods into their diets?
