Breakfast is the one meal of the day that we don’t generally have too much trouble with in getting our Beans to eat, it’s actually more a case of getting them to stop! When weaning them we often turned to Weetabix and it was always received with big open mouths as they couldn’t get enough of it but as they have grown and become more fussy I’m sorry to say Weetabix was one of the foods which didn’t make it onto their ‘WILL EAT’ list. That is . . .
We were asked by Weetabix to have a go at creating our own Weetabuddies. If you haven’t already seen the fun videos then you should watch them, I love the Berry Twins the best.
Weetabix want to get children excited about a healthy and nutritious breakfast so they are asking parents to encourage their children to have a play and create their very own Weetabuddies and upload your photo.
We had lots of fun this evening creating our own Weetabuddies, everyone had a go apart from Jelly Bean who ate all the fruit and preferred his Weetabix the good old fashioned way with cold milk. What surprised me the most was that when Little Bean had finished creating her Weetabuddy she uttered the words “can I try it” and believe me, I don’t hear those words often. The over-excited parent in me thought she meant the whole thing but she tipped all the fruit off and tried the Weetabix on it’s own and she liked it! That’s a win for me!!!
Taking his sister’s lead, Beanie Boy asked if he could try his too and I was delighted when he ate not only the Weetabix but all of his fruit too. If only I had thought about this before.
