My life feels pretty small sometimes, especially when I have little moments of success with my kids. Anytime I can get them to try (and like) a new food, it feels like I have conquered the world. Like no one else anywhere has ever gotten their kids to like a new food. Silly, I know...

That being said, mealtime is a challenging time in our house. Between Hailey, who says she's full after about three bites, and Gavin, who doesn't seem to want to eat anything these days, Sal and I often end up really frustrated. We have a few go-to meals which we know will be eaten up with no problem: any kind of pasta, chicken strips, meatballs, and potato wedges. But because the kids hardly eat anything at mealtime, I often forgo snacks during the day. Except on days like today when Gavin is pulling at my pants crying because he didn't eat a thing for lunch. I turned to one of my daily Weelicious recipes and whipped up some yogurt dip. 

Now I don't force Hailey to eat, but I do make her have at least one bite of a new dish. She fought me on trying this dip, but after she had a taste she said "Mama, I really like it!" (Success!) It's an especially great snack because of the protein provided by the Greek yogurt. Let me know what you think!

Weelicious Yogurt Dip

-one cup of plain Greek yogurt
-2 tablespoons of peanut, almond or sunflower butter
-1 tablespoon of honey (I used agave syrup)

Mix together and serve.

Have a lovely weekend...
