My Kid always picks veggies! YEAH RIGHT!

I can’t believe the MESSAGES I’ve received since I shared a few different things I’ve tried (threatened) my kiddo this week in an attempt to get her OFF the SUGAR and JUNK train!!

Any other Mom’s have this problem??

I mean I thought I was going to be the one with the kid that would LOVE veggies, & healthy foods!

Let me tell you that was a HUGE pipe dream!! And when you couple that with the LAZIEST MOM(in the kitchen that is) we have a real PROBLEMO!

NOW it’s not that she doesn’t like them, but my vision of her running to the the veggie and fruit crisper when she’s hungry isn’t necessarily happening!

So I have to get my act together around here! I mean I have NO excuse! I’m home, and I’m a nutrition mentor…COME ON girl get it together!

I know that this is ON ME! I need to make sure that she has these healthy options at the ready… I mean let’s be honest I would probably go for the snacks if I had a choice too!

So here are a few things that have been working AMAZINGLY WELL this week ++ a few recipes that have been HUGE HITS!!

I tried this on Monday and it was a HUGE HIT!!
If you are tired of your kiddos asking for “junkie” after school snacks?

𝐋𝐚𝐲 𝐚 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐲 𝐨𝐮𝐭!

The rule is, this has to be finished before any crackers, cookies or anything else comes out!
TBH this has been so good FOR ALL OF US, I am nibbling on better choices and so is the man of the house!
