I thought I would be brave and give Reed a carpet picnic for his afternoon snack while he watched “Little Einsteins”. He really did great, considering there was hummus and he is only 2 yrs old… Now that he is a little older, I have been trying to make the ordinary sometimes extraordinary for him to keep it fun(instead of sitting at the table). I think kids so appreciate these kind of things-they remind you to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. I laid out a towel on the floor and then put his snack on a tray in case of any spilling.
He really does eat a VERY healthy diet. His need to eat mostly whole foods due to food allergies has really changed how this whole household eats and we are so much better for it!
This snack consisted of coconut milk(that’s his dairy substitute), cucumbers, pretzels and hummus. He even went for the cucumbers first!
What kind of fun little things do you do for your kids?
