I’m probably a bit too loose with the white stuff.
I don’t punish them if they don’t finish their veggies.
I bought them Advent calendars with a piece of chocolate for every day of December. Quicker than the little drummer boy could rump-a bump- bump they cleaned it out. On the 4th day all the chocolate was gone.
I found the discarded red foil wrappers under the breakfast table. It’s all been eaten and there is nothing I can do. Except not buy one next year. Or keep it in a safe.
I do give them vitamins. I would anyway, but during holiday times when the nutritional zero food is flying it seems extra important. Most of the time they will take them, but a few times they refused as they didn’t like the way they taste. I found some gummie types they will swallow if I edit out out the orange ones.
So, when I was asked to review the Target “up& up” brand vitamins it was good timing. They passed our test. My kids took them happily. Even the orange ones. Phew. They also sent me the adult version. Since I’m not a paragon of healthy eating this time of year either ( or any time of year) I was happy to try them as well. The kids are in the shape of gummie bears. Big mama’s are gummy, but round shaped. I figured a big girl like me didn’t need a multi vitamin in gummy form, but dang, they were tasty. Now they do have some sugar in them. But, like Mary Poppins says sometimes you need a little to get the medicine down. Or dance with Dick Van Dyke. I can’t remember.
