One day I asked my very 2-year-old daughter what she'd like to have for a snack. She looked at me with an impish grin on her face and said, "Butterflies!" Just as I was about to say no, I got this idea and thought it might just give the old "Ants On A Log" recipe a run for its money (Ants On A Log consists of celery stalks filled with peanut butter, and topped off with raisins to resemble "ants"). It was a success, and is simple, healthy, and fun to make!
When my children complain about something I’m serving, I still request they eat a small amount, but I listen to why they don’t like it and make adjustments. I used to serve broccoli with a cheese sauce on top because I know my children love cheese.
