Sometimes I need to remind myself just how far my children have actually come on this food journey of ours and give them a lot more credit.
We recently had a little friend of my daughters over for an afternoon play date and I soon realized how different our food habits are now.
It was very hot when I picked the kids up from school so I bought them some frozen orange. The guest didn't like this and asked if we had Zooper Doopers instead (a colored and sickly flavored ice Popsicle in a tube)to which I had to say no we didn't. But I did have a healthy Smooze (natural flavored ice treat) from the freezer she could try. She didn't like their coconut flavor.
When it was afternoon snack time I offered fruit, the guest didn't like fruit, but was happy to try my cake, until she was told it was made from Weetbix! That wasn't liked either.
Our poor guest had to resort to eating her leftover school lunch, which was full of processed crackers and cookies with pink frosting and colored sprinkles. The kind of treat my children would never touch these days.
yes, my kids have certainly changed their eating habits and for the better and there is never a complaint or a no when they are offered some Weetbix slice!
Bec Taylor is a lover of all things quick, convenient and tasty. Her favorite foods are sloppy, cheesy and hopefully cooked in one pot as she hates doing the dishes!
