Long ago, to get Brandon to eat his brocoli I took a page from Parents magazine, and told him they were little mini trees. It worked, he loves them still to this day. (He also still calls them trees but, meh who cares.)
Last night I hit a new creative low.
I made beets. Brandon eyed them suspiciously and so I said, "Brandon, you know how we put color things in the water to make it change color in the bath? Well, beets are like colors for you, so if you eat them, YOU WILL HAVE RED PEE!"
And he ate them. Every last one.
However, when he woke up this morning and said to Rob, "daddy I think I missed my red pee," I felt a little bad. I have no idea why it didn’t work. I’m hoping he gets a red pee at school today or something, because if not I am TOTALLY going to feel like a fraud as a mother!
What tricks do you pull to get your kids to eat?
