This afternoon I stumbled on ketchup boy peeling open a can of pineapple with a fork. Flip-flopper got a cut on her wrist just the other day for attempting the same thing. First he took off the label. He must have assumed that was part of opening it. Then with the fork under the pull tab he pulled up and started sawing his fork under the lid to pry it open. Can’t yell at the kid for trying to eat something healthy.
Canned fruit can be part of a healthy diet. Make sure it’s canned in it’s own juice and not added sugars and you have a great source of vitamins and nutrients. Plus canned fruit is available year round and you can keep in your food storage for a very long time.
I got risky and cooked it up with our BBQ chicken (very quick meal idea). It was received surprisingly well. The boys liked it, the flip-flopper didn’t. They tried it though and that was all I asked.
