Mary Poppins may have been onto something. A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down but so does a little dusting of sprinkles help the food go down! Or so I have recently learned! My little guy simply does not eat. Most things he does not like and even those few items that he does like, he won’t eat anyway. (I often wonder how he
survives thrives on such little amounts of food!) But he does love sprinkles and I have recently experimented with putting a few sprinkles on top of some of his food and he devours it with a big smile and an un-coached “thank you, Mommy!”
Now, I just need to start carrying sprinkles in my purse for the times we eat out at restaurants . . . .
