I don’t know if I’ve told you, but one of Lucas’ favorite foods (actually it might be his favorite food ever) are crackers. Any shape, size, color, variation, texture- he loves crackers. I think Ritz might rank up there as his top 5, but I would have to check with him to be sure. If I let him, he would live off of crackers.
Personally, as a afternoon snack, we like to have what we call a “cheese cracker sandwich” which is a slice of cheddar cheese between two Ritz crackers. It’s mighty fine.
Anyways, we had a recent discovery around here that happened by chance. He used to love avocados- they were his first food- but then he went through a stage where he didn’t like them. How can you not love avocados, right? Topped with tortilla chips, salsa and a Diet Coke? Favorite meal ever.
Lucas did an experiment, adding his Ritz crackers to his avocado and it was a hit! A genius one. He now loves to dip his crackers into the avocado. I’m so pleased he’s back into eating these things. Talk about super healthy (and yummy) fats!
Do you think I could add broccoli and carrots to his crackers? I wonder if they make a vegetable based cracker…. Ha. I would eat that too! But really, what other ideas do you have ( or new inventions that you’re kids have shown you!) to “sneak” a healthy food into your toddlers diet? Or your grown up’s… if you happen to not be a huge fan of green vegetables. (Not me of course.)
