well now that my little guy has gotten slowly more comfortable with lettuce .. it occurred to me that I just might be able to start pushing the much loved family BLT, L-ettuce included!! .. my boy still will not touch raw tomatoes he does however love bread and bacon .. high hopes were set for these to be a good -L-carrier.
So I came up with this little trick .. it is admittedly beyond simple .. nothing mind blowing here.
In the past I have always tried to slip in larger slices of lettuce into my little guys sandwiches .. which were easily pulled out and rejected! So with the thought to just rip up a small slice into tiny little pieces that do not stick out too much, came the hope that my boy might pull out a few and maybe also just let a few stay in?!
happily it has worked .. I have used this little method now whenever I make him a sandwich .. and we are now one letter closer to him eating a full BLT! ..a little simple thing to archive and share to help him along in his journey to loving his greens.
