Publix Prize for You!

Be honest, are your kids good produce eaters? You’ve heard my stories of dinnertime battles & stubborn eaters many times. While my little one will eat ANYTHING, my big girl is a pain about fruits but LOVES onions and peppers. Odd, but I’ll take it!

    This was a great post and definitely reminded me of the importance of not straying from the healthy eating path. I am trying to up MY own personal produce intake but with Isabella, who just turned 1, we’ve been very adamant about giving her lots of fruits and veggies. Right now, she’s enjoying some tasty watermelon.

    Hi, currently pregnant with our first but I watch kids in my home and a little girl I used to watch would eat a green pepper like an apple.
