I did a little whining last week about Jona and his very selective dining preferences as of late. I have no delusions of turning him (back) into an adventurous eater, but I'm going to try to get more creative lest he live on cheese quesadillas and fruit for the next few years.
I refuse to become a short-order cook at dinner time, so I'm just going to keep serving him what we're eating and hope for the best. (I do always make sure there will be something he'll eat...I promise, he's far from starving!) However, I could use a couple of quick breakfast and lunch ideas that are win-wins (both healthy and Picky-Pants-approved).
Recently I tried a recipe from my Little Eater Pinterest board that I hoped would pass the test, a Spinach Berry Smoothie.
The smoothie was a new concept for Jona. He loves the sqeeze-it-yourself containers of yogurt and applesauce, so I hoped it would be a hit. I made it pretty thin so that he could sip it from a cup with a straw, which was also new to him. He did drink a little, but he remains skeptical. I think I'll play around with different combinations to make it a little thicker, yet still drink-able.
I'm not big into smoothies, but I know they're pretty popular. Do you have any good smoothie recipes?
