Through the years my kids have at times been picky eaters (that’s putting it nicely). One trick that I have come up with that seems to work pretty well is taking a lollipop stick (can be purchased at craft stores such as Michael’s or Joannes) and putting the food on there. The first time I ever tried it I made a kabob of sorts, alternating bananas and strawberries on the stick. I handed them over to my daughter asking her “Do you want a banana strawberry pop?” She instantly said yes and ate it right up in a matter of seconds. Keep in mind that only 5 minutes prior to that she wouldn’t eat the strawberries or bananas cut up by themselves on a plate.
So as time went on I began to test this method with other foods. Here’s some other food ideas that you can use with the lollipop sticks:
1. Cubed cheese and Turkey/Ham
2. Hard Boiled Eggs
3. Apples and Grapes
4. Kiwi and Strawberry
Pretty much you can put any combination you want and try serving to your kids. I do recommend calling the item some sort of “pop” or “lollipop”. Psychologically I think it makes it sound good to your child.
