The stand - night one

It was a mixed day.

At lunch I served my daughter the chicken nuggets and applesauce she didn't eat the night before. Yet again, she hemmed and hawed and didn't eat. The consequence was no snack/drink for school. It was a risk having her be the only one in her pre-k class without a snack, but actions have consequences. I even put a note in her backpack so the teacher would know what was going on and not give her a snack from her stash.

When I picked her up from school, she immediately asked for a snack. I told her that was fine as long as I chose the snack. A handful of grapes were eaten faster than I've ever seen.

At dinner, she really resisted. There was one thing on her plate I knew she'd eat -- diced pears -- but the chicken pockets and mixed veggies were new. I'm not sure what flipped the switch for her (maybe me telling her how she would never try pizza but then when she did she loved it) but sure enough, she tried both and liked both. She had about 5 bites of each. Not a lot, but it's a start.

Trying not to get my hopes up!
