The boys are reaching the age where me pansying to their eating whims needs to be put to an end. It's almost a little embarrassing to take them places where someone has cooked a great meal and I know they're going to snarl their noses and only eat the bread and dessert.
Today I am making them try carrots! Making or forcing, whatever you want to call it.
I gave them 4 slices of canned carrot with their chicken nugget lunch and am not allowing them to watch television or go play outside until they both have eaten their 4 carrot slices. I'm not even giving them any other food options or snacks until the carrots are consumed. I know, I'm a very mean woman!
Bailey finally caved and ate his dipped in ketchup. Maverick is still being hard headed and fighting me to the death to not have to eat his. He'll be a hungry little munchkin because until these are in his stomach, he won't be eating or drinking anything else.
It's bad habit breaking time for these two and I know it's going to be a long, hard battle! The end result of children who will at least attempt new foods in public will be worth it, right?
