You've probably seen this tip before, and I'm here to tell you a couple things about letting kids pick the veggie:
- Even at 20 months of age, it gives them a sense of empowerment — and sends a message that their opinion matters. (My son's verbal abilities are developing, but one thing I believe I can still communicate is respect for each family member's opinions.)
- It doesn't guarantee that they'll try the darn thing. And even though this is sooo frustrating, it's still OK.
In this particular showdown, my kiddo picked mushrooms. Anything not-green always wins, by the way.
