WHAT I ATTEMPTED TO FEED MY 4-YEAR-OLD FOR DINNER

  1. fish sticks
    staple protein; one of the only ones he'll eat without me hiding it in something else.
  2. cheesy rice with chopped broccoli
    sometimes he picks out the broccoli, but at least a bit makes it in his tummy and assuages my mom guilt.
  3. but then I got ambitious.
    borderline reckless.
  4. my kid has always refused to eat peas or corn.
    but the veggie side to this meal, for the adults at least, was a sweet potato, corn and pea mix.
  5. but tonight, I went for it.
    dreaming big here, folks.
  6. you likely know how this story ends.
    🚫🌽😕
  7. maybe next time!
    you just never know with those small humans.
