I decided to try an experiment with my daughter in hopes to get her to eat a little more healthier snack. In the past I have plopped cucumbers and dip on her plate and handed it to her in which she snubs her nose at and refuses to eat it. This time I decided to cut up the cucumber into sticks (makes it easier for kids to dip) then I placed it on a decorative plate, along with some hummus. I sat down next to her and began to dip without offering her any. She watched me eat about two cucumbers, then asked "can I have some?" I said she could and surprising to me she ate, ate, and ate! Was it the presentation? I do not know but the only way to find out is to keep trying!
Conclusion: Operation trickery was a success!
