Sunblock

Research shows that putting sunscreen on your child's face, neck and arms as part of getting dressed in the morning can significantly reduce the risk of skin cancer when they are older.

I learned this somewhere else on social media, but we changed our language from “Try/taste this food”to “Learn about this food.” Learning about a food can include tasting, but also smelling, touching, squishing, talking about its color, shape and origin, combining it with other foods, etc. It’s at least more fun than the power struggle of asking a toddler to eat a food they don’t want!

I also let my littles cook with me. They have their own “big kid knifes” now and feel super cool helping. They are the pickiest eaters 😒 have been since they started solids. One meal I can pack FULL of veggies is  spaghetti! I chop SO many veggies as fine as I can (😅) and they are  oblivious...until after and I tell them all they ate.... I remind them how good it was and all the super powers they now have. 🦸🏼‍♀️♥️🦸🏻‍♂️

Letting them help cook! They love trying what they helped make 👨‍🍳👩‍🍳
