Do you have a picky eater at your house? Do you fight to get them to eat fruits and veggies? I have a picky-cringes-at-the-sight-of-veggies-eater so I feel your pain.
Well I have a couple of mommy \brilliant solutions for you.
First, all you need to do is convince your picky eater that as a Superhero (or princess or ninja or whatever) they need their fruit and veggies. We are a bunch of superheroes around this house, so I opted to remind my super picky eater that Superheroes Eat Veggies.
I decided my picky eater needed a t-shirt to help him remind him that as a superhero he needed to eat his veggies. The Superheroes Eat Veggies T-shirt was born. He hasn't wanted to take off his this shirt since he put it on. Keep reading for details on how I made this shirt.
The next mommy brilliant solution are these Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers. They are brilliant. They have fruit squeezers and fruit and VEGGIE squeezers. Plus they are portable. Everyone knows as a Superhero you have be ready to go save the world on a moments notice.
They are packed with 1 1/2 servings of fruits and veggies. They are have a fruit-tastic taste that my Supers loved. They have no corn syrup which I loved.
These have a variety of ways to use them. Not only are they great for an on-the go snack or the school lunch box, but they also are great for after game snacks. No matter how you serve them, your Supers will love them. For more ideas on how to encourage your kids to eat healthy visit this my Healthy Kid-Approved Snacks Pinterest Board.
Add some garden to your Super's lunch box and the snack pantry with these Fruit Squeezers. Your Superhero will run faster and fly higher.
Run faster than a speeding bullet to your local grocery store and grab up some of these Del Monte Fruit Squeezers. Del Monte offers good for you fruit goodness in plastic cups. Again, any way you serve it, they are gonna love it.
Once you have your favorite Del Monte snack in your pantry, snap a photo of your Super enjoying their snack and head on over to Del Monte's Facebook Page and enter Back To School Contest: Do you Squeeze or Spoon? All you have to do is upload your photo and vote on your favorites.
How cute would your photo be if your Super was sporting this Superheroes Eat Veggies T-shirt while they were enjoying their favorite Del Monte snack? You could change the wording to Princesses Eat Veggies or Superheroes Eat Fruit And Veggies or anything else.
To make the shirt:
You need a t-shirt, heat transfer vinyl, vinyl cutting software. The font I used was Bebas. Type up the phrase you want and flip it horizontally, cut it out on your vinyl cutter, and iron on to your t-shirt. If you don't have a vinyl cutter you can also trace the phrase onto freezer paper, cut out to make a stencil, and use fabric paint to paint on the words to the shirt. Any way you make it, your kiddo will look adorable.
So let me know, do your kids prefer to Squeeze or Spoon? My Supers can't decide what they like to do best because they love it all.
