Sammy has got to be one of THE pickiest eaters in this world. I had always heard about picky eaters but since my 4 oldest were all fairly good eaters, I had never had to deal with a child that refuses to eat so many things. Then came Sammy. This little girl takes picky eating to the next level. One of her favorite things to eat is pepperoni pizza but when you give her a slice: she pulls off the pepperoni and most of the cheese. She then is left with the saddest slice of pizza I have ever seen, and she really enjoys eating it. But there are so many items that she won't even touch. This makes meal time with her very aggravating for her dad and I. For sure it's sure taken a lot of the fun out of eating out because there are too many places we can't take her to so we end up trying to eat at home as many nights of the week as we can. At least I don't have such a hard time with her snacks. Sammy loves tea, yogurt, fresh fruit and cheese. This makes getting her after school snack a breeze compared to the rest of her meals.
This is how easy it is to put a snack together for my picky eater.
1: Purchase Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies which are a staple in my fridge. Right now she is really loving the limited edition flavor Strawberry/Cotton Candy. This flavor is only available this August.
2: Adding fresh fruit is easy because she pretty much likes any fruit. Thank goodness! Today I am adding some green grapes but I also like having clementines, apples and strawberries at-the-ready.
3: For my growing child I like to add some extra calcium and that means some of her favorite cheese. She also really loves string cheese so I always have both in the fridge at all times.
4: Adding Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies in their cute, easy to drink bottles is what really makes this snack fun for her. She loves these and will reach for them herself during the day which is fine with me because Dannon® Danimals® provide "Only the Good Stuff®" with no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors, as well as provides a good source of calcium and vitamin D.
With this snack we can avoid the back-and-forth of me trying to make her eat something that she refuses to. Instead she actually sits and enjoys her snack, which fuels her up for all of the evening activities and homework ahead of us. Am I the only one that dreads the 3 hours of homework? She's only in 3rd grade and yet I feel like we are doing the amount of work of a high school student!
Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies are the perfect on-the-go option that help kids fuel their adventures at school, after school, during practice or during a beach day! Now that is a fun adventure we are looking forward to this weekend!
