My Boys curiosities seem to run in themes ..for a while it's Fire Trucks then Owls then Sharks then Submarines etc ..well, I think I have found another way to jump onto that bandwagon ..I have a lot of cookie cutters and as the dinosaur theme was running its course I had my dinosaur and bones cookie cutters out for some play dough activities and it dawned on me to try cutting out some type of food with it. We had just had some nice little thinly chopped roasted Sweet Potato bits at a dinner with family and I remembered how quickly and easily they roasted up and decided to give these little dinosaur beauties a try!
The first time I served them I did only three little dinosaurs with bones ..and let him have some dinosaur books at lunch ..I served them with soup as he quite often refuses soup and I hoped that would work in my favour and make these more tempting ..he ate one! I was over-the-moon! ..and he even ate his soup! It was a great day.
Now I offer more on his plate and some extra pieces that are not dinosaur shaped as I work towards transitioning him to eating the Sweet Potato without being cut into special shapes.
