Yesterday, I peeled and sliced a cucumber and then squirted it with a little fresh lemon juice. The leftovers went into the fridge and were then served with grilled chicken, carrots, and mushrooms for dinner. The two year old called the cucumber slices "chips" and proceeded to dip them into his grape juice. He then dipped the rest of his dinner into his grape juice, AND ATE IT. What is so funny to me, is that he rejected cucumber slices just last week.
Personally, I thought the lemon juice really increased the cucumber appeal. And since the grape juice (actually 100 % welch's grape juice mixed with simple carbonated water) seems to hold his attention, I will continue serving veggies "chips" with juice.
Remember that old saying "Think outside the box?" Well, my little guy gets to pick the veggie preparation from now on. Good eats, everyone.
P.S. Thanks Miss R! We are not alone.........
