This brings me to when I had to baby sit my picky eating little brother and sister. Ocarina and Tory would take me to hell and back when it was time to eat because OFF one letter wanted or 010 not want want I was making so I would nave to make two separate servings of two different food items.
After a while I started to get very frustrated and with them because they made me not want to feed them and Just let them starve, but that was Just my thoughts and always fed them no matter how they made me feel. I remember one day when it was lunch time I knew what I was preparing for Ocarina and Tory was something neither one of them liked but my mom wanted me to feed it to them any ways, so I saved myself the headache and cited to have them help me make it.
Honestly I was scared at for them to see what the dish consisted of but by me turning the preparation of lunch into a cooking show they were having so much fun making it with me that they was distracted and did not pay attention to the healthy things I put in because we have dyed them different colors and Just saw the ingredients as other things, it is all in the creativity baby. After all the fun we had making lunch they actually ate it all both of them at that.
I was relieved and kept the secrets in me and Just hoped the results of next time loud be the same as long as I kept coming up with creative and fun ways to make them two little picky eaters eat, especially when one wants one thing and the other wants another.
