Kid reluctant to eat? Add sprinkles!
Jenny Blackburn, author of the Adventures in Parenting blog at the Seattle P-I website, shares her picky kid secret:
We've finally happened onto the perfect solution to get our 3 year old son to eat... I keep a bottle of sprinkles -- the kind you put on sugar cookies-- and let him shake some on his food. From yogurt to oatmeal to chicken (yes, I'm afraid it's true), it's the perfect antidote to this toddler's natural reticence to eat.
Oy, the things we do to get our kids to eat.
