Notes From Motherhood: Snacks

I love snacks. I love them more than real meals. My favorites are popcorn, raisins, nuts, fruit…and chocolate cake. My husband says chocolate isn’t a snack but that can’t be right because then why would I call it “snacking chocolate”?

My 3 year-old loves snacks as well. She won’t eat many vegetables but she will eat baby carrots because they’re so adorable and snack-able. When she was younger she used to embarrass me by hitting up other moms at the park for their goodies. All a mom had to do was open a zip-lock bag or box of crackers and my little hooligan would go running towards her! They probably thought I was starving my child. We always had our own things to eat but the novelty of another child’s food was irresistible.

Lately I’ve been trying to get her to eat healthier foods. Apparently all of her classmates are munching on cucumber and baby arugula at lunchtime. I know I can sneak veggies into her favorites such as steamed, pureed cauliflower into her oatmeal and eggplant into her smoothies, but I’d love for her to one day eat vegetables knowingly.

I have a plan. She loves to have her park and playdate snacks packed into her BornFree Formula Dispenser. Creative, right? It has three compartments so that different items don’t mix (it’s a sin for foods to touch in Toddler World).

Perhaps instead of packing her usual munchies like sunflower seeds and popcorn:

Pretty healthy but we we need veggies!

I’ll start bringing this to the park:

Peas, corn, and snacking chocolate.

Totally kidding! I won’t take peas and carrots to the park because I’d never remember to bring a spoon.

Maybe putting the vegetables in a container she loves will encourage her to eat veggies at dinner. I’ll remove the chocolate and give it to her when she’s done of course.

Let me know what you think. I’ll choose one commenter to win a BornFree Formula Dispenser!

NowWhatBaby.com Review

Melissa from NowWhatBaby.com just posted a great review of our Trainer Cups and Teethers! As a mom of two young boys, Connor and Jackson, she’s an expert on all things toddler and I’m so excited that she’s given us her seal of approval.

Straight from Melissa:

“This one never leaks! It is so easy to clean. There are no straws with impossible to reach crannies or weird plastic suction pieces I can never put back on correctly. My little boy loves smoothies and many cups will not allow him to get the teeny tiny fruit through the spout – not the case with the soft spout on this cup.”
