Last week, when I took the kids to the grocery store, Baby J noticed the veggie trays and begged me to buy one.
Who is he?
This is the kid that is a junk food connoisseur. He begs to go through any drive through he sees, even if he just ate a fulll meal.
This is the kid that, early on, would not consume a vegetable to save his life. I had to hide veggies any way I could and came up with some magically healthy creations like oatmeal, applesauce, zucchini, carrot, raisin muffins and hamburgers with tons of shredded veggies mixed in.
What I eventually came to realize was that he just doesn't care for cooked vegetables - except corn (the kid is obsessed with corn). Any time he sees me cutting veggies for meals, he asks for some. Raw. This kid likes his veggies raw. And that's great - even healthier!
So, when Baby J asked for the veggie tray, I happily obliged. The fact that it was on sale for $1.99 only sweetened the deal. Actually, if it wasn't on sale, I would have just bought the veggies and made my own tray, but I digress...
For the last few days, at each snack time, he asked for some of his "special snack" and I was thrilled to give him a snack that I thought was pretty special, too!
