My 7 year old daughter LOVES raw veggies, she is a little rabbit, which is wonderful!
My 3.5 year old son is a rather picky eater and he has yet to not gag when he attempts to eat raw veggies.
The other day, my daughter saw some raw beans and cucumbers that I had prepared and put into bowls for dinner. She asked me she could rearrange them on a plate.
Here is what she came up with:
No sooner had she finished, my son noticed what she had done and asked if he could do the same. ABSOLUTELY! He was expressing an interest in even touching raw veggies, I was all for him laying them out in whatever way he pleased.
Here is his creation:
So at dinner, I asked him if he was going to try to eat his bean and cucumber person and do you know what?! For the first time EVER, he picked up a cucumber and ate it! He actually ate a raw cucumber. He didn't finish it and he did start to gag at the end, but he did it!
I was one proud Mama!
How much FUN are those cucumber and bean people?!
