Brigita’s tip for enticing her toddler’s protein palate:
One of my tricks to get my toddler to eat more protein is to take a slice of deli meat (or, in my case, fake bologna), fold it into quarters, and then get the kid to take a bite out of the middle. When you open the slice back up, there’s a hole in the middle. My toddler loves making her “Os!”
Hopefully this doesn’t leave you with lots of half-eaten bologna which you then MUST eat because a large percentage of a parent’s diet comes from kids’ uneaten food. Am I right? I’ve eaten more macaroni and cheese in the last five years than in all of my childhood.
