I made this today. As a matter of fact, I make them almost every day thanks to Ash. These are actually mickey mouse-shaped french toasts and choc milk for her mid-morning snack. She loves mickey mouse EVERYTHING. If I can get a mickey mouse-shaped vege, I think she'll just whack them like crazy too..heheh...
Ash's been eating on her own since she was a year plus. I don't feed her. Yes, she makes a mess and it was tough when I had to get down to clean up after her when I was pregnant with Em. But still I persevered because if there's anything I lack is patience. I can't be arse-d spending hours on end feeding her. So, I figured, short term pain for long term gain :-).
It worked beautifully.....until she became a somewhat lazy smarty pants. These days, she'll look at her plate, pick out the things that she likes and leave the rest. Then, she'll take her own sweet time, giving me a smile or two but still, she just won't touch her food.
So, these days, in order to get her to eat the "rest" on her plate, I'd feed her. Oh the thing I hated most and I have to do it now. But, thankfully, she chomps down her food pretty quickly. Otherwise, I'll get more headache than I planned to!
How about you? Do you still have to feed your toddler or is your toddler a champ?
