If nothing else works, try tricking them!
Tracy McArdle: A few disclaimers before well-meaning moms let me know that butter and salt are bad for children and all processed food is evil (I know these things) ... I am not a nutrition expert, or any kind of expert, just a working mom struggling to get her two toddlers, ages one and three, to eat something (OK, ANYTHING) resembling real food at every meal!
In the last three years, I have learned a couple of things that work for me and my kids -- they may not work for everyone, but I am hoping, in the spirit of exhausted motherhood camaraderie, that you will share some of your tips too! Onward, all pea-fearing babes!
