Alice Waters Would Approve

Julia's last two snacks have been green peas and half a grapefruit (yesterday afternoon), and a handful of raisins with raw almonds plus a dish of edamame (this morning). Keep in mind that these snacks were eaten gleefully with much satisfaction and enthusiasm--no complaints about healthy food in this house. Ahh, the power a parent still has over her child's eating habits when said child is only two years old. Can't you just see the payback coming, though? She'll be sucking down the Dew and eating Cheetos for school lunch by eighth grade, won't she? Sigh.

Are you sure you won't bring her her lunch each day and stay and watch to be sure she does't sell or trade it to someone who also loves healthy food?
