The simple yet game-changing trick that you need to try:
It’s like clockwork- every evening when I start preparing dinner, my kids run into the kitchen hungry and whiny. Requests for snacks are rampant and there are little fingers dabbling in dinner ingredients all over the place. Not only does this make it harder for me to prepare dinner, but it is also a patience tester (big time!).
When dinner is finally served, like most young kids, they rarely eat a good portion of veggies. The more appealing fare (the entree, starchy sides etc.) is almost always gobbled up, leaving the greens and oranges untouched for the most part. Not only is this frustrating for my husband and I, but it also creates food waste and spawns mealtime battles. Although I try to salvage leftover veggies from my kids’ plates, most of them are too grimy and slimy by the time dinner is over to justify saving them.
A while back, I discovered a magical solution. So simple, yet so effective, and it works like a charm.
