Matt wanted to see the kids reactions so we waited until he got home to eat. Each kid moaned as their dish was placed in front of them. I told them if they each ate one pea or carrot, they didn't have to eat any of the other vegetables. Maddy was practically in tears just thinking about having to eat a pea. My brave eater, Ryan, finally took a bite followed by Cade who tossed his pea in his mouth to get it over with. Even when Cade declared that the 'peas' weren't so bad, Maddy wouldn't try it. Ryan couldn't hold it in anymore and let Maddy in on the joke. At that point, she didn't know if I was fooling her or her brother was. She finally stuck her tongue out and licked the tiniest spot on her spoon. April fools!
Now to get them to eat their real dinner!
Here are the Starburst carrots and taffy peas.
