My kids are very picky eaters, with the exception of Gavin. Gavin used to be horribly picky but has really made progress over the years and is by far the easiest to feed. I have to give mad props to Gavin for that. 🙂
Elliott and Emmett are a different story all together. They are extremely picky and getting them to eat fruits or veggies is quite often impossible. I have been doing something lately that has really helped.
I mentioned before about banana ice cream but I wanted to update you all as to how this is going.
Basically, I freeze bananas and strawberries, blueberries etc. Then I take them and stick them into the blender and let’er rip.
Frozen bananas taste like ice cream and when you add additional fruit it not only adds flavor but also color. This is important because my kids are sensitive to things like color. This gives them some control over the outcome and they love it.
They think they are eating ice cream when they are simply eating frozen fruit. You can even mix in some veggies and they likely won’t notice them.
The good thing about this issue that it’s 100% healthy and 100% whole food. This is a great way to not only provide your kids with the means to eat healthier but also teaches them to make healthier choices on their own.
I just wanted to share this with you all again because this is still working great for us.
