Last week, I bragged that Mr. Miles was so good about eating his fruits and veggies. This week, bring on the carbs!
For breakfast, Miles had another carrot-zucchini muffin, a scrambled egg and kiwi.
Gone first? The muffin. Then the egg. And the kiwi? Well, it went to the dog.
Miles had an early lunch (cheese, corn and carrots and whole grain bread) Wednesday because our daycare provider had something special in store.
They were going to the ball game!
Because all of the kids are part of the summer reading program at the library, they got free admission and a voucher for a hot dog, chips and drink. Mark met them at the game and tried to share the meat and lemonade but Miles was too tired.
He did have a fruit pop - orange, judging by the stains on his outfit - but the rest was for the birds. Or dad.
My little guy came home red faced but in a good mood.
And a good appetite.
He devoured the Quick Paella that I made for dinner - even the peas. I guess he's just been wanting some flavor.
Other ways to get sneak about fruits and vegetables (as I've found so far):
- Veggie-packed meatloaf muffins
- Pureed fruit stirred into yogurt
- Chopped up or grated into pancakes
- Mashed with nut butter on a sandwich
- Dipped in organic ketchup (look for no high fructose corn syrup)
- Add color
- Switch bites. I sometimes do one bite of cheese, one bite of veg.
- Banana soft serve
