Did you ever watch the 1990 movie Mermaids? Cher played the mother. She was a mom who never made anything for her kids to eat except finger foods. And most of it was served on a toothpick. I tried that approach tonight with Amelia, Carter and Taevi (our three local grandkids). Taevi went with the flow and ate a good dinner. The other two are not so adventuresome, so they didn’t eat much. Perhaps it was their ages; they are only 3, 2 and 2. I think a 7 year old would love the idea. I’ll have to try it with Madeline when I see her in a few weeks.
Carter did like dessert, though. Chocolate Cherry Squares.
