Picky eater!

Claire is a very picky eater. Our lunch/dinner choices are only hot dog, pizza, pasta or mac & cheese. It kinda drives me crazy that every time I try and have her try something new she hands it back to me before putting it in her mouth and says "I no like it."

We have had two successes lately which makes me think that it is all in what we call the food. A week ago she ate an entire slice of meat loaf because Scott and I told her she was going to eat "meat cake." This weekend, we decided to try chicken nuggets again (this has been a Claire reject food multiple times). Instead of telling her it was chicken nuggets we told her she was going to eat "chicken cookies." Wouldn't you know...she ate them all up.

I think the moral of the story is that Scott and I have to be more creative in what we call food!

Welcome to my world... except Ben has stopped falling for the creative renaming. My personal favorite was "Yoda Bites" for these breaded spinach things... oh, and "green ketchup" for creamed spinach. To this day, I can't believe that one worked. ;)

Chicken cookies are definitely Logan's favorite. He will eat them up as long as they are shredded up in bite size pieces.

Carter calls those frozen mini pancakes cookies and will eat about 9-12 of them in one sitting...that's my pig! And if I put ketchup on his plate, he'll eat anything! Kids are so funny!
