🌈 Food Positivity
I was getting ready one day when Isla yelled this out to me.
Right after, she said, "I ate a carrot,” I immediately responded, "Way to go!" Then she shared how it was actually from a fruit snack, which made me laugh! I didn't react by telling her "that doesn't count," or "well that's not the real thing," but rather I told her that we can eat carrots in all different kinds of ways, and that I was proud of her for eating a carrot.
Whenever you talk about food, always try to keep it positive, and that will encourage children along the way to expanding what they eat! 🥕 🌈
