Last week, I posted a blog about changing my daughters' lunchbox fare. I am happy to say that things have been going well in that area, because I went shopping specifically looking for healthy options that my kids will actually eat and like. I scored big time with the following lunch:
Laughing Cow Lite Swiss Cheese Wedge
My 6 year old came home and said, "Mommy!!! I LOOOOVE that cheese and those crackers! I want some more right now!"
So, Laughing Cow is pricey...but Laughing Cow it is!!!
And another new development on the Healthy Kids front:
My 4 yr old boy watches me prepare all my lunches and dinners. Two nights in a row, he's been curious about different veggies I was chopping. The first night, he saw me chopping celery and said, "What's that? Can I taste it?" He tentatively chewed a little bite and exclaimed, "I like it!" He asked me for 4 more pieces of celery before he went to bed.
Then, last night, he saw me cutting up cucumbers for my salad. He said, "Mommy, you eating leaves?" Pretty much, kid. He tasted one, but didn't care for it. But then he asked to try the cucumber. That kid ate an entire half of a cucumber last night! The funniest part was when he had tried the first piece, then said, "Can I have more of that?" And I said, "Yes." And he exclaimed, "Mommy, you say YES?!?!" Oh man...do I say "no" ALL the time?! Haha.
Healthy Mommy, Healthy Family. I'm really starting to believe that!
