The job of being mom comes with a long list of responsibilities and challenges. And for many, food choices are top on the list. Providing healthy food choices for your family in an industry that's forever changing the rules is a true lesson in patience. And after all the arduous research and carefully chosen grocery selections comes mom's number one challenge - getting finicky eaters to embrace those healthy food choices.
It's not easy.
And now that there's a new generation of little ones running around our home from time to time, I'm once again faced with the challenge of encouraging finicky eaters to eat. My trick in the bag? Fun food activities.
Naming foods silly names and creating plate art with vegetables can often do the trick. But if I'm looking for guaranteed success, I bring the food to the play table. It's by far my most successful way of introducing new foods to a picky palate and getting a nod of approval from opinionated little personalities.
Anytime a new food introduction is surrounded by something they love doing, my success rate soars.
This was how I introduced these two tot's to kefir. As you've heard, I'm on a mission to convert my family from yogurt to kefir. Being a lover of Greek yogurt, it was easy for my husband and I to make the switch, but with these two... well, it's not always so simple.
So by hosting a tea party that included some of their favorite foods along with the kefir, my plan was a total success. They loved the sweet taste and yogurt-like consistency (and serving it in a "real" glass was an enticement that no little girl could resist).
My family has fallen in love with the Lifeway kefir products. The flavors are truly tasty, and the ever-growing line of products keeps boredom from creeping into our daily routine. Frozen pops and Fro Yo are perfect as treats; and if your in the mood for something savory, there's a selection of cheeses I can't wait to try.
Just as moms do for their own families, Lifeway has focused it's family-owned business on healthy and delicious.
And if Lifeway can get this little one to do this:
I call that a success.
