I'm always looking for simple and healthy ways to get the kids to eat better. We have 2 year old twins that are in the 'I can do it myself' phase. Cereal is so messy, so far I've come up with 2 fun ways to eat it that get more in their mouth and less on the floor.
I take a small spoonful of natural peanut butter or 1/4 of a banana and give them a few spoonfuls of Rice Crispies at a time and let them dip into the cereal bowl. The cereal sticks to the spoon of peanut butter or banana and they love getting to do it their self! What ideas have you found that work with independent eaters?
