Sweet Stuff: Crunch a Color Game
Every nutritionist and child care expert I’ve ever known or read frowns upon using dessert as a bribe in getting kids to eat their vegetables. But do I know a parent who does not rely on this tactic? Uh, no. And I include myself in their numbers! I know, I know, I’m setting up a system where vegetables are the unpleasant necessity that my kids are required to endure to get what they really want: sugar. But it works, damn it, and I can’t stop!
5 5 points for apples, bananas and grapes, 15 points beets, radishes and rainbow chard. The game comes with a chart so you can keep a weekly tally and pit your kids against each other. What? Okay, that is not in the instructions and probably not advised by parenting experts. But I’m doing it. Stand by for results…. 14.95 at Indigo.
