Helping did not make them eat


To help the girls get more involved, and maybe eat more, I included them in making dinner tonight. We were making pizza. The girls got very involved as you will see with the images that I took. I asked them what they wanted on their pizza. Both girls agreed to the following topping: bacon bits, cheese, tomato, cabanossi and carrot. I thought this would be a winner.

I read and heard about two ingredient pizza dough. It consists of yoghurt and self-raising flour, and I was keen to give it a try. They picked the ingredients, they both helped and they tasted some of the ingredients, so it was a winner in preparation, however this enthusiasm did not translate over to eating the pizza. Both girls did not eat any of it and was not interested at all.  I was very upset and disappointed, especially after all the effort that I went to. Oh well, I suppose I just have to find other ways to interest the girls.

Again, I explained that this was their dinner and I would just feed them a small amount of milk and off to bed they went.

The pizza that I made for the girls was nice, however the one for us ended up better. I gave ours more time in the oven and it seemed to work out well for the dough. I was very impressed in how easy this is to make and how tasty it is to eat.

If you want something that is easy to make, good for you and is a simple meal, I would give it a go. Do you have any quick dinners that might tempt toddlers? If so send them in.

    I have the same problem with my son, however, I recently made pizza dough and then cut it with an extra large cookie cutter into stars. Whereas it’s usually a struggle to get him to eat anything, he was pretty enthused about the star pizza. Could be worth a try.

      Hi Melanie, Yes that is a great idea to put them into shapes. Will try that next time. Thanks.
