Bad Mommy Confession: We often have fights about food in our house.
I don't want to get into the details here. But suffice it to say that my kids are doing a lot better for the last several months. They actually eat vegetables now...and without a fight! They like a large variety of fresh, frozen, and canned veges, too! I never thought we would get to this point.
A few days ago I babysat my friend's boy in the evening. While he was here I decided to try a new recipe for dinner. I took all the kids with me to the grocery store to get the ingredients. (Our grocery store has one of those carts with a car attached to it that seated the 2 little kids and then the 2 big kids hung onto the cart at various points.)
Each child was given a shopping list to help keep us all focused. (All the lists were identical.) And they were also told to think of 1 vegetable that they would like to buy and eat.
It was very interesting to me what they chose:
Friend chose squash. (He said he liked yellow squash but didn't know what variety it was and didn't see anything that looked familiar so we got spaghetti squash. Not a hit.)
Primus chose Larry the cucumber and Secundus chose Bob the tomato. Thank you, VegeTales.
