Elias is a picky eater.
Matthew says I have no room to talk. You reap what you sow.
I guess I am a bit picky myself…
Elias is worse though. 🙂
Anyway, motivating him to eat his veggies can be a challenge.
So I decided to jump in feet first when Birds Eye challenged me to make their new, kid-inspired “Yakimaniac Veggie Martians” recipe with Elias.
It was a hit!
A little background from Birds Eye: “This year, Birds Eye set out on a mission to inspire a new generation of vegetable lovers and became first company to go straight to the source, kids, to change the conversation about vegetables. In partnership with Nickelodeon and iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy, the goal was to empower kids’ creativity and encourage them to share their inspiration with others.
Kids submitted more than 16,000 veggie-centric recipe ideas through the Nickelodeon partnership, giving inspiration to several new recipes.”
Because Elias is so into monsters, I told him we were going to make Veggie Monsters and he was hooked.
He helped mix all the ingredients (in our Pampered Chef batter bowl that I love so much) and make the monsters.
His favorite part was using the glitter gel to make the monsters blue and green.
The finished monsters were adorable.
But, the best part was that Elias actually ATE THE MONSTER he made.
And I basically felt like Mom of the year. 🙂
