Getting Mr. P. to eat his veggies is like getting troops to pull out of Iraq.
Though not as dire a situation, it remains nonetheless frustrating.
I came up with this simple solution,which, so far, seems to work.
With each meal, Mr. P. gets to move the colored pieced from the blue area to the red color wheel, showing a collection of the colors he’s eaten for the day in fruits and vegetables. The only trick for me is trying to make sure he eats a wide variety of colors.
Here’s the catch: Smarty Pants P. likes to argue the point that if he’s already eaten white banana at breakfast, he shouldn’t have to eat the white cauliflower at dinner. Luckily for me, Trader Joe’s sells the purple and green variety.
