What a Difference a Scoop Can Make

Written by weightwatchers.com editors on 7/15/2009 6:22 PM | COMMENTS (3)

Last week I gave my 2-year old a bowl of cubed watermelon and she turned her nose up at it. I mean, come on, it’s pink, it’s juicy, it’s sweet!

So yesterday I got out my melon-ball gadget and scooped away. She loved that her melon was “balls” and must’ve shoved about 20 of them in her mouth, in about 2 minutes, the juice dribbling down her chin.

If I knew that’s all it would take, I would’ve gotten out my $5 scoop months ago. Now that I think about it, I wonder how broccoli ‘balls’ would turn out?!

    LOL I think we should try making all fruits and vegetables into balls for children and us adults that are not that fond of them. Nice creative tactic!

    My toddler won't eat watermelon unless it is on the rind. Toddlers are funny that way.

    That is a great idea! I might try the broccoli balls!
