The Shocking Results From The Banana Hot Dog Experiment:
Before going forward I should let you know I got this idea from another source, only I don’t remember where I saw it. I’ve browsed the Kid Eats Flickr Pool and haven’t seen it but I swear that’s where I first saw it. Going forward just note, this was not my original idea.
Max did not touch the Banana disguised as a hot dog, didn’t even unwrap from the plastic wrap coating. It, quote: “freaked me out”. My son is generally the less picky of my three children (I’m counting my spouse) so this was surprising. Likes seafood chowder, hates bananas in hot dog buns.
Madison loved the banana disguised as a hot dog. Which is surprising because she typically hates anything which is different than white bread with peanut butter sandwiched between another slice of white bread. Hates seafood chowder, likes bananas in hot dog buns.
I honestly question whether all my children will be happy with the same meal at the same time at any point in my life.
The Muffins from last week which were originally a ‘hit’ ended up not being a hit. I sent them to school and my daughter ate a bite claiming she didn’t ‘have enough time to finish’. She didn’t have “enough time to finish” when I offered her one as an after school snack either. Max ate it as a snack but left the remnants of the carrots I questioned from the beginning of the recipe. He left them in the bottom of his plastic muffin container like the bones from a fish.
Not a hit as I first suggested.
Still on a quest to find something I can make at home relatively inexpensively which is good for them I decided to try this recipe. A homemade power bar with lots of good things and very little fat or refined sugar.
I have to admit the sheer amount of ingredients was daunting. I like 5 ingredients tops because I always lose track at that point and add things twice or omit things accidentally.
This was pretty easy to follow and I made it through with no mishaps.
The kids each had a bite as it came out of the oven and seemed to like it at least a little. However this morning Madison wanted one for breakfast and another as a snack at school. My son saw I’d packed one for his snack and begged me to take it back.
The recipe was simple enough to make I’ll make more for my daughter but I’m still searching for a nutritious muffin or power bar both my kids will eat. I’m a glutton.
