You know those sequences in movies when a single girl decides she’s ready to meet someone special and then they do a quick montage of dating failures? One guy won’t pick up the check, another guy puts his feet on the table, another shovels food in his mouth until the poor girl gives up, goes home and buys a cat?
A few weeks ago, I filmed that very same dating montage. Except all my dates were kids three and under.
Ever wonder what kids would order in a restaurant without the benefit of parental influence? It’s not healthy. I’ll tell you that much.
Check out my latest video with Go & Grow Mix-ins by Similac:
In a perfect world, toddlers would happily gobble up every vegetable and protein we put in front of them, but despite our best intentions, most kids insist on a steady diet of french fries and pasta. Go & Grow Mix-ins isn’t a replacement for healthy eating, but it will definitely provide added nutrients on the days kids who won’t vary from the bread food group.
Go & Grow is a powder that comes in small to-go packets. They can be stirred into foods like rice, pasta, mashed potatoes, oatmeal, applesauce and pancake batter to give an extra boost of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and DHA (which helps promote brain, eye, and overall growth development.) They are GMO and gluten-free. And kids won’t taste the difference!

It’s certainly not going to happen on a date with me!

Good news… if you add this to your kids mac and cheese, you will also get protein and vitamins when you find yourself standing over the kitchen sink eating their leftovers at the end of a very long day… 🙂
Oh my goodness. Truth!
this is hysterical–you do such a great job with these!!
They are all so cute. I love Jack’s little “we don’t eat po-tein. That’s silly.” Also the little girl who just stares. Ahh! Please keep making these videos!
This video is awesome! I’m a former preschool and Sunday School teacher and these videos always make me smile. Have a wonderful day!
Every dadgum day!!!! Lol
Chocolate covered chocolate…yes, please!
Umm, I need at least 10 more minutes of that. Hilarious! And so true. My only problem is my 3 year old will only eat french fries when we go out, so I can’t mix those packets into fries. We literally can’t eat anywhere that does not have fries. My husband and I will go back and forth trying to decide where we are going to eat and it always comes back to it, do they have french fries.

This is me out with my kids, except you have less children that hid under the table.

Oooh, this is one of sweetest posts!
I was recently thinking on how I would spend my time with my family. I can share my thoughts with you:
But this is cute and the best part is – how do you manage to make these toddlers sit quietly and get them to behave themselves. Quite a big challenge, but I liked it a lot!
