I stopped buying cereal awhile ago and our mornings have been MUCH MUCH better. If they knew it was in the cabinet my kids would whine for it… not anymore!!
Ben (3) and Zach (7) gobbled this up quick. I felt like such a champ. 🙂 Nothing feels better than knowing your kids just ate super awesome.
While they were eating I talked with them about WHAT they were eating.
What the turkey has in it… protein… what does protein do? …. makes you strong.
What does the cheese have? Calcium… makes bones strong etc… I even showed them the food label and read it to them, pointing to the areas of the label that are important to read… like SUGAR… 0g
Pistachios have a ton of minerals so they looked at that on the label. The cutie has natural fruit sugars and Vit C!
So they ate while I was putting on a sort of ‘show’ … they loved it, learned, and ate healthy. Woohoo!
Try this next time with your little ones! 🙂
What do you do to get your kids to eat healthy?
