Simple Solution

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best.  My daughter has been trying to get her kids to make healthier food choices, and it's hard as a grandmother to say no to those sweet little faces even when you know what's best for them.

A few weeks ago, when she called saying they were coming over for a visit I decided to fix a little tray of healthier foods and have it on the little table where they play.  I didn't say a word about it, and they spotted it right off the bat.  "Mimi, who is this for?"  they asked.  I told them is was for them, and that I thought they might want a snack.

It worked like a charm.  They sat right down to that table and began munching.  Not one asked for a cookie, or any other sweet treat, and before the visit was over the entire lot of it was finished.

Now, I'm wondering if I can pull this trick on myself?

  1. Or you can try to pull this trick on me!!! haha!!! I know I'm much more likely to go grab a cookie instead of go and cut celery, even though I'd rather have celery with peanut butter!!!
