Well, the latest food to meet the same fate as bacon is vanilla soy yogurt.
And while it's annoying to have this ongoing love/hate relationship with certain foods, the despised yogurt presents more than just one less food the Bird will eat.
See, I've been sneaking two of her crushed medications in that yogurt.
So I'm stuck with trying to disguise the blasted pills in yet another food item that will, one - disguise the taste, and two, ensure she's getting all of said pill.
And then I had a stroke of pure genius, if I do say so myself.
While searching for some treats that Lily could have every now and then, I discovered that the lowly Junior Mint is within Dr. Goldberg's diet protocol.
Look very closely at the picture below and see if you can tell what I did:
If you looked at that photo and thought....
" I know exactly what she did! She took a shish-kebab skewer and dug a small hole into the center of a couple of Junior Mints. Then she took that tiny bit of crushed up pill and "injected" it into those tiny holes. Then she mixed the "special" Junior Mints in with a few regular candies and fed them to Lily. I just know that's what she did!"
.....then you would be 100% correct.
I performed successful candy surgery.
My kid ate the "special" Junior Mints right alongside the regular ones without batting an eyelash.
Score one for Mom!
Of course, this will only work until the day she decides she loathes Junior Mints....
