Today’s Nutrition Nibble
“Mom, but I’m hungry!”
Supper is in half an hour and I know they won’t eat any of it, if I give in. I’m not saying this is always smooth but what works for us, is a stick-to-it rule before meals:
If you are hungry within an hour of a meal, choose a fruit or vegetable.
Here’s what they reach for (keep in mind choking hazards if you have wee ones):
- Frozen peas or corn
- The vegetable we are having for supper except raw (and then they don’t have to eat it at meal time)
- Frozen berries
- A small box of r aisins
- Handful of grapes or an apple
This gives the boys a bit of control, can get in an extra serving of vegetables or fruit and takes the edge off, so I can get back to getting supper on the table.
Hugs and blessings,
