Get Your Kids to Eat Right (Part 3)
We thought we had heard it all when it comes to ideas for getting kids to try new foods. Not so! Meal Makeover Moms’ Club member Amy D. of Houston Texas, faced with the challenge of feeding two extremely finicky boys, went to the extreme with one of the most clever, out-of-the-box strategies we’ve ever heard!
Here’s what happens when Amy introduces a new food to her kids:
“If my boys eat it all, they can squeal like a pig and eat their food like a pig, a la ‘Christmas Story.’ You’d be surprised what becomes more palatable when you can really be a pig. And, yes, there is a mess and they only get the piggy opportunity on NEW foods. Besides, after a ‘pig session’ we always get a few ‘squeals’ when the same dish comes back around!”
