something to honk about
Last night our 8 year old was protesting as my husband tried to talk him into eating a couple spoonfuls of corn on his plate. “I don’t like it, I’m not gonna eat it,” he said.
“It’s so good,” I countered, “They are like little pockets of sweetness that pop between your teeth.”
“I don’t think it tastes sweet,” said he.
“It’s like eyeballs that pop between your teeth,” offered our much more mature 10 year old. He is always willing to help in situations like this.
“Corn is delicious,” said my husband, “In other parts of the world they eat insects, I’m not asking you to eat insects, just corn.”
To which I just had to laugh, “CORN – better than eating insects!”
Just think of the potential. We could adapt this slogan to any vegetable, as in, “Broccoli – better than eating insects!” or “Cabbage – better than eating insects!” I think it’s a winner.
How do you get your kids to eat their vegetables? What slogan would you use?
