What else can I feed The Boy that will help him get all his nutrients. He loves to help in the kitchen, so trying to find recipes that doesn’t involve a whole bunch of chopping isn’t always easy. I become the sous chef, and then I’ll call him over to be my mixer. He’s also a great ‘go-for’.
Last night, it was Jello time. It’s powdered sugar with gelatin and colour. Great.
So, to bump up the nutritious value we added blueberries and grapes. We used Arthur’s Smoothie Juice instead of water. BAM! Just had him eating more fruit in one dessert! Used clear plastic cups so he could see the suspended fruit.
He’s had one already and wants more. Dude, it’s a snack/dessert, not a meal.
Layered Jello – is so cool looking and tastes great!
