So Aria has rejected all things beef ever since she gave up purées a couple of months ago.
Tonight I was determined.
Yesterday, you got me to let you have cereal for dinner. Not again.
I packaged the beef with oranges and orange juice. Mixing finger foods it my all time most successful strategy for introducing new foods.
I try the get-it-in-your-mouth-and-taste-it-child! method and get the “sour face, head turn, gritted teeth, push” maneuver.
This is not working.
Okay. How about we try our next most successful strategy: repackage.
How about a wonderful wrap?
Again, I rallied to the cause and dug in to my inner advertiser.
“Spartans! What is your profession???”
Okay. What if we change the delivery, the color, and the shape??
Green quesadilla anyone??
[This is where I fail to admit she did manage to get cereal after getting through enough of her quesadilla to make me happy. Was making sure she was full enough before bed to sleep through the night??? No friggin idea. Ask me in a couple of weeks!]
