"B"ella is 3... she is in FULL BLOWN toddler mode! One day she likes something, the next she doesnt like it! Needless to say, dinner is not the most enjoyable moments in our day. So, I've been toldread.. children need to be exposed to a food up to 10 times before they "LIKE IT". And I can say that its actually mostly true, at least with "B"ella. "C"indy just says "It's not my favorite, but I still gotta eat it!"
We've worked our way through carrots (the rule is that they need to eat 4 baby carrots and then they can have a slice of pizza -- they were each eating 2 to 3 slices of pizza without the carrot rule -- and I am sorry, but I can BARELY eat 3 slices of pizza in one sitting!). She will even eat Califlower (mashed, with sour cream, salt and pepper, and cheddar cheese). And she also eats cabbage!
Now our a Drama Veggie is broccoli. As a kid I LOVED broccoli.. still do!! I found a website that has some tips for getting your toddler to eat broccoli (come on this veggie is packed with fiber!)... can't wait to try anything to get her to eat it. :D
So do you have any Drama Veggies? Or suggestions on how to work your way through the Drama and onto the Veggie?!? On a side note.. fruit isn't a problem.. these two will eat anything and everything in the way of fruit.. they even ate a kiwi.. and those things look scarey!!
