Anyone with young children in the home knows that it can often be a challenge to get your children to eat what you want them to eat. Most of the time the kids have their own ideas on how they should spend their meal times! Happy Family™ recently partnered with a few top mommy and daddy bloggers to bring some of their Funny Feeding stories to life. Even Happy Family™ CEO and founder, Shazi Visram, shares her “We’ve Tried Everything” story.
Each video features a feeding story in a humorous way that parents can relate to. Happy Family™ wants to encourages us to share our own “Stories from the Bright Side” on Happy Family’s Facebook App for a chance to win a great prize (see below).
My Picky Kids
While my kids are much older now, there was a time when my toddler son would eat nothing but scrambled eggs and cheese drenched in ketchup for months at a time! I tried so many time to add in finely chopped or pureed veggies to his eggs but he always knew when they tasted “funny” and wouldn’t touch them unless they were prepared exactly the same every day! When my daughter was a baby and still eating pureed baby foods, she loved all of the fruits and veggies that we tried, except for green peas. As soon that spoonful of green peas started coming towards her mouth, she would clamp her little lips shut tight and refuse to even try a bite! She would do that baby arm waving thing, shaking her head and turning her face this way and that without so much as budging that little clamped mouth, lol! Kids can be so fickle when it comes to food!
Thankfully, with one now an adult and the other a middle schooler, they both are willing to try pretty much any food and they enjoy a great variety of flavors. It seems surviving on scrambled eggs or grilled cheese (my daughter’s toddler meal of choice) for months at a time didn’t have the negative impact on their health or diets that I feared it might.
