create (with kids)

Once upon a time I had a little girl who was easy to please. She ate whatever was put in front of her and loved trying new foods. Then she got bigger. And I began having troubles pleasing the little girl, who is so cute when she's happy and a tad less cute when she's not. I was going to have to come up with a better plan.
So I've begun offering a yogurt parfait bar. Using a muffin tin to hold all the goodies, she's able to add walnuts, strawberries, blueberries, applesauce, oats & quinoa crunch (see recipe in previous post) to her plain yogurt "all by herself". Interestingly, when Mama gives strawberries they're not eaten. However, when Isia has the choice to give them to herself...

They get all ate up! Not only is she learning to include "variety," "texture," and "color" in her art, but she's also busy while I create some food art of my own by prepping veggies for dinner. Yea for busy little artists! (smile)
