This Mom's Sticker Hack to Get Her Kids to Eat Vegetables Is Actually Genius
Jane Stine, a mom with kids who unsurprisingly need a little coaxing to eat their veggies, has come up with one of the best hacks we've seen for getting picky kids interested in at least tasting a vegetable: stickers. In a post to Facebook, the mom shared a photo of a Winnie the Pooh character sticker on a large squash and explained the method to her genius.
"Here's my best parenting hack. You know how kids always want Paw Patrol yogurt or Disney waffles or whatever? Bring your own stickers to the grocery store and start sticking," she wrote. "Today we're having Winnie the Pooh brand spaghetti squash. It goes perfectly with Toy Story broccoli." And not only is it helping her kids be more interested in veggies, it's helping them to be less distracted by other foods associated with kiddo franchises while at the supermarket. "It's working well for us to make grocery shopping more fun and helps us from getting distracted by other character-based packaging and stick to our grocery list!" Jane told POPSUGAR, noting that she recently found study from Cornell that suggests what she's doing definitely works in some cases.
This might not end up being a wild success for every kid, but we've got to admit: if Doc McStuffins carrots are the thing that gets our kids to take even one bite of something that isn't a Goldfish cracker, looks like we're buying extra sticker sheets!
