Keeping meals fun and interesting for my family is a challenge. I’m always looking for ways to make sure my 2-year-old is eating more fruit and vegetables and to make them look fun. Jackson has “interesting” taste and would sometimes rather eat plain grapefruit instead of a cookie. One thing that is always a constant with him is that he is ALWAYS unpredictable. He may love strawberries every day for a week, then suddenly refuse to eat anything even resembling a strawberry.
I found one way to get his attention is adding COOL WHIP Whipped Topping to plain fruit like strawberries or blueberries. I’ve been doing it since last summer when the feeding team recommended adding a topping to his fresh fruit to gain his attention. It works well and now we have COOL WHIP in the fridge for the rest of the family!
I love having it on hand because it goes so well with all types of food and even comes in a lite version (perfect for my husband and I!) Some of my favorite snacks that are more special with COOL WHIP are:
- Sugarfree Jello with COOL WHIP on top- so tasty!
- Pound or angel food cake with fresh fruit (throw on some strawberries & blueberries and you have the perfect dessert for the patriotic cook out this summer!) Simply add COOL WHIP on top.
- Throw whatever fruit you have in a bowl with some COOL WHIP, very refreshing!
- An old Weight Watchers recipe that my Mom used to make: angel food cake (box mix) mixed with one large can of pineapples and LITE COOL WHIP on top makes for a low-point treat. Although I could eat the entire cake, which probably negates the entire point…
daily trip to Target today I stocked up on COOL WHIP and the whole family had it with our dessert. Jackson had it on his strawberries and blueberries, while I baked an angel food cake and my husband & I had it with LITE COOL WHIP on top. Since I’m trying to lose the last 10 pounds, I am going to stick with the lighter version while my toddler is sure to enjoy COOL WHIP on all of his desserts this summer.
