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 daughter does not want to try a specific food, her daddy tells her that the food she refuses to eat is his and that she better not eat it all up. She laughs and starts eating the food so that her daddy can’t get it.
