We have a winner

Yes my friends, I have successfully gotten my finicky toddler to eat butternut squash and zucchini. OOO, I feel so evil.

My secret, "blue box" mac and cheese with butternut squash puree. And Chocolate zucchini cake with shredded zucchini. You can't taste it, smell it or see it. It is moist and very tasty.

"And today's prize for getting that wonderful lovely fiber into your toddlers diet...Drum roll please...."

Jelly bean: "I pooped on the potty! Mommy, want to see it?"
Me: "Yes you did, good job."
Jelly bean: "I ate a lot and now I poop." smiling proudly.

Hooray! Potty-parent-training is going great. The trick, she gets a new (very cheap) book for going #2...in fact it is going so well...the rule has now changed to (for my wallet's benefit), during the week Jelly will collect stickers on a card, in which she can then redeem for a trip to the Local Library and pick out some books of her choice.

She is very excited. And this may be it...the accidents are getting less and less! WooHooo!

GREAT idea to get stickers to go the library! My kids love the library and the early they start, the better! Great job!
