On the contrary yes this is just an example photo of a bowl of delicious green salad with mini grapes that I made myself. The highlight is that I got to share it once again with my oldest!! May not seem like a big deal, Ohhh but trust me, it is a huge deal!!!!!
I've been quite persistent and consistent with my oldest boy that his vegetables are important!! It has taken great encouragement and creativity every damn day to get where we are today!! 😂 Ever Since he was able to eat solids as a baby he was an EXTREMELY picky eater, etc.❤ Everyday for the last month or so I've been prepping him delicious salads and vegetable dishes for when he's hungry and best believe everytime he has asked for a snack, guess what he got from his mama!! Not a quick easy snack that he wanted he got more greens and crunchy veggie dishes that he didn't dare put in his mouth before!! I sat with him..I ate with him day after day and schooled him on how important life foods are for your body and well being..heck I even ventured into more visual physiology and anatomy to make him see that mommy is not trying to feed you gross food and make you upset or be with an empty stomach but damn I am not letting him miss out on all the delicious earth foods "mother nature" PROVIDES US WITH!! See what i did there.. (visual nature which he loves..hence our nature walks ;))) WE ARE DAMN LUCKY YOUNG MAN. Eat up. #GiveThanks 😊
NOW, I can finally say that he not only eats his vegetables now, he enjoys his vegetables now and it makes me even more excited to make delicious nutricious veggie/salad dishes for the family. .....Ok ok, It took intermittent persuasion at the beginning of his journey with a little cheese sprinkled in the dishes..😂🧀 Since I thought and knew it was also a palette/texture issue. Needless to say, I am ALL for getting children out of their damn comfort zones even when they continue to test and challenge you daily!! 😎 Furthermore, As we went on awhile ago I removed cheese away smoothly like magic and now he doesn't even ask for cheese. Long story short. I am so proud of the little Veggie man you are becoming! 😚 💙☄☄#CreativePassionateSoul
