I’m not gonna lie, y’all. I can be a bit of a controlling parent. Sorry, not sorry. When it comes to my child’s nutrition, I’m just not okay with dealing with her temper tantrums and giving in to the demands of fries and chicken nuggets. Which, she’d eat every day with complaint. I believe in offering healthy options as often as possible and eventualllllly I know she’ll eat it. And if she doesn’t, I’m okay with hiding it. Such is the case with avocados.
Elle never liked avocados. Ever. But I’ve found some ways that I can actually get her to eat this nutrient-rich fruit. In fact, this morning after she downed her oatmeal, she asked for a piece of toast. I toasted a piece, slathered avocado all over it and cut it in a cute shape. She gulped it and asked for seconds.
Could it be that I’m actually winning in this Picky Toddler Eating department?
