My three-year-old is a master when it comes to working around his picky eating habits. I could have a member of the Paw Patrol team parade his food in front of him, in a bowl made of sprinkles, with a firework display in the background, but he would see right through my creative efforts.
Finding a way to get him to eat his veggies is, dare I say, impossible. When I ask him to try something he takes the tiniest, microscopic bite. Immediately following his “attempt” of trying something new, he produces an intense feeling of repulsion. What is a mom to do?
Our friends over at Miffy have unlocked the answer to my prayers. Their Healthy Tulips snack-tivity has inspired my son to eat more than just processed carbs. I have never, I mean never, seen my child eat carrots, cheese, and cucumbers in one sitting, let alone at all.
Make eating healthy fun with Miffy and her friends. Here is what you’ll need for your Healthy Tulips:
- One large carrot
- One cucumber
- One block of cheese
- A toddler with an open mind (I added that one in for myself)
- Slice carrots into a flower by cutting two triangles out of the top to create a tulip shape.
- Cut cucumber slices into halves and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds of the cucumber.
- Cut the cheese into blocks.
- Layer the difference pieces onto the toothpick
- Place the toothpick into the cheese creating the base of the flower.
- Next place the cucumber to create the leaves of the tulip.
- Finally, place the carrot at the top creating the flower.
Voila! Now you have an adorable, healthy, and delicious snack for your kiddos. So, if you have a picky eater, give this snack-tivity a try.
