Pick Your Battles

In the war that is getting toddlers to eat (its surprisingly hard sometimes), everything is fair game. So if I give my kid V8 Splash because it has a serving of both fruit and vegetables? I’m calling it a win. Besides, I dilute the crud outta that stuff.

Also, there will be some days when your child wants pancakes for breakfast, lunch, a snack, and very likely dinner. And won’t eat anything else. Every once in a blue moon, give yourself a pass. Just brush their teeth REALLY well later that night.
