Cue the problem
Ask a kid to eat a meal? Cue the problems. 😠⠀⁠⠀⁠ Ask a kid to eat a snack? Just try and stop the excitement. 😀⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ There's a reason for this. ⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ Snacks are usually foods that come out of crinkly packages. They're palatable. Easy to chew. Bland flavours. Fun shapes. ⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ Meals are whole foods of varied textures. Often new foods. Strong flavours. Less sweet. ⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ You get it. ⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ I have a million reasons why I think snacks and meals really should be more hard to distinguish from one another. But today, I'm focusing in on ONE. ⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ And that is that, if you want to avoid your toddler forgoing meals and only wanting to eat snacks...this is one of the biggest reasons. ⠀⁠ So level the playing field. Make them one and the same. ✨⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠ *Note: This doesn't mean you can NEVER use easy snacks that come out of a package. But aim to reduce it significantly (my kids saw those as treats so would get it only a few times a week), OR at least start mixing up when you serve them, so that they are present at snacks AND meals, and real food is present at meals AND snacks.⠀⁠⠀⁠ ⠀⁠⠀⁠

Is this fine?
Is it okay to hide food in other foods in order to get my child to a wider variety of foods?
