Being that her appetite has waned, and she’s eating less now than she did eighteen months ago, I’m happy for any food that I can convince Grace to put in her belly.
I’ve even resorted to silly noises and saying things like, “Feed your belly!” and “Grace! Your belly is hungry!” Use your imagine to hear the goofy voices that might go with those. I’m not making a video of that.
There are a scant few foods that Grace will willingly eat almost every time. One of these foods is the incredible, edible olive and the other is yogurt.
The third is chocolate, but let’s pretend she has never tasted chocolate, okay?
I have come up with a trick for convince Grace to eat the yogurt. I freeze it.
Grace thinks she’s getting ice cream, and I’m totally okay with that for now. The “ice cream” is sweet and creamy and full of fruit and the calcium that she needs.
They contain a lot of added sugar, but I have been freezing Gogurt yogurt pops often. They’re easy, and Grace can feed them to herself. We have been doing frozen Gogurts for an after school snack. I usually cut them in half so that she has two smaller servings, and she gobbles the half down in no time.
What are your kids snacking on these days?
