No, they're not uber healthy, no, they're not organic, no, they're not homemade, no, they're not granola-mom approved.... but they are magic.
Kids will eat ANYTHING with sprinkles... they'll happily stuff their faces... even if it only has 10 sprinkles topping the magical heap of health.
This morning's oatmeal ingredients were lacking... I had none of the usual berries to entice the kiddos to eat their warm gooey goodness. Solution? Sprinkles. Their faces lit up like kids in a candy store... they ate bowl after bowl after bowl....
I swear to you - try it sometime. The kids hate the salad? Add a few sprinkles. Kids hate their peas? Add a few sprinkles. They'll eat and eat and hunt and dig to get to those few magical sprinkles.
Does this make me a bad mom? Maybe, but my kids are eating well with the help of a few tiny bits of candy coated sugar. I like to think it's one of those things June Cleaver might have done... a little special surprise for the kiddos on a cold morning...
