We have a picky eater in this house. Lately, I have tried to introduce one new food a day into his menu. Yes, it is usually a fight, remember we are dealing with a 3 year old. One bite is all I am asking for from the ‘new food’ category. Fresh farm food – hands down is my favorite. As I have said before, my in-laws have a garden bigger then our house. Luckily we get to reap the benefits. Our little guy helped plant a few of the veggies. Luckily, again for us, his pre-school also planted a veggie & herb garden. Finally, the other day, I mentioned to him, “That is what you helped plant. When you dug in the dirt & helped water, that is what came up. Farm Food!” For some reason, it clicked! “Farm Food” as in tractor, dirt, running, jumping, playing in the water = Farm Food. Finally, the one bite rule is okay with him. Sometimes, we even get a few more bites. I guess not only is it in the presentation of food, it’s the words you use. Farm Food, who knew it would get this picky eater to try a few new things on a regular basis?
Btw, remember the blueberry buckle I mentioned last week? I made it. I skipped the topping & made it with whole wheat flour. The picture (2nd from the top) is it, along with my husband’s concoction = vanilla yogurt & a little granola on top. Yummy.
While we are on the subject of foods…Oatmeal Brulee anyone???
I read about it in my fave Cookie Magazine, and found this mouth water picture & recipe here. (P.S. you don’t have to have one of those flame-brulee making tools -either!) We are forecasted for a cooler rainy weekend. Brulee Oatmeal sounds perfect for a rainy weekend morning. Don’t ya think?
See you next week!
