One challenge I face with regard to feeding JP is that he likes to drink more than he likes to eat. Often times I can’t give him anything to drink when I give him a meal, because he will load up on the drink first and the food gets forgotten. Because of this, I am always looking for creative ways to get vitamins and minerals into him – Silk Fruit and Protein is one of them. I feel really good about giving him a drink that is packed with protein, vitamins & minerals. Not only is this highly nutritional, but is highly delicious as well – especially if you’re a berry lover, like us! I picked some up recently while I was out shopping – you can view the whole experience on google+ here.

So when we got home with it, I decided to let JP have a little bit with his lunch. Sometimes blogging can have it’s difficult moments –  allow me to illustrate…

Me: (Staging a blog photo)

JP:  *Grabs the carton* “Juice, Mommy!”

Me: No, no JP… Please don’t touch it yet, Mommy needs to take a picture first…

I set my camera down, re-arrange the moved carton, tell JP not to touch again and hope that he listens this time. I pull my camera back up to my eye, zoom & re-focus to get the right shot, and then…

Sometimes, there are things that just aren’t meant to be! Obviously he could not wait to get his hands on the Silk Fruit & Protein, so I poured him a big sippy cupful to see how he likes it.

Now he’s a happy camper! My backup plan was to use the Silk Fruit and Protein as a base for a fruit smoothie, just incase he didn’t like it on it’s own. I picked up some yogurt and frozen blueberries while I was at the store, just to try it anyway, and it turned out pretty good too!

My kids now ask if I want a photo before they dig in–lol. Takes a bit of training, but he’ll get there. Glad to hear your picky eater liked this drink. Going to have to see if I can get my picky eater to try it.
