Dinner Time

Every family has a child that won't eat. For us, it is Kestian. If ever there was a contest for the longest time it takes to eat a small bowl of vegetables, Kestian could win it hands down.

In our house, to make sure the kids eat enough veggies, we serve a bowl of them to the kids before they get their "real dinner" (which then usually contains 3 or 4 fruits, plus "dinner"). It has taken Kestian up to 45 minutes to eat his veggies - before he even starts "dinner." No amount of encouragement, discouragement, pleading, ignoring, or evil eyes will get him to eat any faster than "Kestian-speed." Yeah. I get it. He's a slow eater, but come on! Anyway, lest I drag on about this ad nauseum, see for yourself...

Love the video. Ryan is the same way with her veggies. We also do the pre-dinner veggie bowl. Good trick!

Okay that was so funny! BTW (actually totally off topic) what color paint is that on your walls? I love it and want something just like it for mine!
