You take me as I am
Into your new scarred hands
and when I run so far away
you always call me back again
into your open arms
not matter what ive done
amazing grace has found me here
because of what you've done, for me

Hah. My 300th Blog Post.
Monday, October 29, 2007
Here's my 300th blog post. Good morning! and here I am, about to write something about kids and their veggies. hur.
Don't know if you have heard, but Jerry Seinfield's wife has a cookbook on how to slip kids their veggies so that they will increase their intake of the green goodness. This means slipping in pureed veggies into sweets like brownies and stuff like that.
Number 1: Wah lau eh, you're spoiling the taste of sweets lor! It's comfort food you know?
Number 2: You're telling kids that sweets is good for them (which technically isn't, that's why you don't give it to them all the time.) But doing this will just increase their intake of sweets! Apparently, it's not all that effective as well.
Number 3: erm, I haven't thought of number 3 yet. Pureed veg? That's for babies. Oh oh, you're showing them that veg comes in pureed forms; they won't know the taste, smell, look of it if you keep liquidifying them. Just makes them stupider.
One thing I learnt from being a kid, a teenager and then a young adult. Take a page from my parents' book.
Don't force your kids to eat their veg. Because in time they will. Even if it comes ten years later, they will eat enough for a lifetime, or at least make up the time they lost not eating them when they were kids.
