Grateful for Sippy Cups

img_0341

Little Man is four and still uses a sippy cup.  Yes, I hear you, I hear you.  It is bad for his teeth.  We are all too aware of that, especially the way he drinks them (more on that later, maybe).  He can and does drink from a regular cup.  However, he doesn’t eat fruits or veggies (except for bananas) and this is the only way to get them in him.  We don’t know why this is.  Sensory issues?  Something with a possible problem with his cleft pallet?  Or just plain old picky eater syndrome?  For now, we are fine with him drinking his fruits and veggies and getting him to “try” some that I serve on his plates.  (Bribing anyone?)

Just a side note.  I tried making my own smoothies for him, awhile ago (see the top photo).  However, that was a one-time event.  He wasn’t having any of the others I made.
