First of all, the baby food sold in little pouches is too awesome for words (see Ella's or Plum Organics). While Sweet P is definitely no longer a baby, I don't really care. She has recently eaten broccoli and tonight she had spinach, peas and pears. No bowls needed, just twist off the cap and give it to the toddler. It's so fun that they don't appear to care what is in the pouch. Verdict: Yay!
Now pie, because eating vegetables means dessert.
Think about how you eat pie. Go ahead. First bite. Second bite. Good, now forget all of that.
How does a toddler eat pie?
Parenthood affords us the opportunity to see the world through new eyes. Watching Sweet P grow and learn sometimes brings to my attention how many constrictions we live by, without even realizing it. So, start in the middle. Start in the back. Do whatever you want!
