how to get your child to eat berries.

Invent the idea of "fairy cups"!! A while back, Andrew didn't want anything to do with the raspberries I had bought for him to eat... that is, until I was washing them and came up with a sneaky little idea! The water landed inside the berries which made me think of little cups, so I told Andrew that fairies drink their water from raspberry cups. DONE. Andrew ate the entire carton of them, first sipping the water from each (just like the fairies do!) and then popping the berry in his mouth! :) To this day, each time I buy raspberries for him, I fill each one up with a few drops of water and he just loves them!

A few days ago, he ate two whole cartons of "fairy cups." Yay! Moms have to come up with crazy little stories sometimes, right?! :) xo!

Eeek! I love raspberries, too, but Sebastian never gets past sticking them on all of his fingers and licking them. I think I'll try your method and see how that goes!

Great blog!
