Love, love, love this idea from Real Simple. I am so going to be trying it out with my five year old tonight!
If you have a picky eater, or a 'reluctant' eater when it comes to veggies, have them roll a couple of dice - the number they get is the number of bites they need to eat. No nagging, no pleading and no bribing. What??
I have hopes this little trick will keep name-calling (I am so not a 'mean mom' and certainly not the 'meanest' of all mean moms!) to a minimum come dinner time.
