So my kids are a little weird. First, my son -who just turned two- didn’t initially seem to be a fan of sweet peas. He would literally rather shove them up his nose than eat them. Yeah….
But a friend mentioned a trick to me, and my kids have been eating it up ever since. Frozen peas. Yep. Frozen. Peas. I serve them in fancy little ramekins, and they gobble them up like candy.
One day, I happened to serve frozen peas at the same meal with applesauce, and -wouldn’t you know it!- a new, weird marriage was formed. My 4 year old daughter got the genius idea to dunk her peas in her applesauce. It’s been a strange hit ever since.
She tried mixing with her yogurt not too long ago, and although she ate it, claimed it just wasn’t the same. So from now on, when my daughter hits the (apple)sauce, we’re adding some frozen peas to the mix, for a little extra nutritional boost.
My son -freshly off his second birthday- enjoys his frozen peas as well, but is more apt to eat them by themselves. However, the other day he requested some alongside his raisins. So, he had an interesting assortment of finger food. That’s right: peas and the sauce – seems to be a big hit in our home.
P.S. If you’re curious, I recently made my own applesauce. Remember that sweet ol’ Vitamix my husband scored a while back? Yeah, I created some awesome Vitamix applesauce with a (secret) twist – check it out!
