Ben loves to eat. Well, most of the time he loves to eat. Occasionally it is more fun to throw food than eat it. Every time I try to give him vegetables this seems to be the case. Like all little kids, give him something he likes and he will go to town. Recently Meo brought in some fruit salad she had leftover from a party. It had blackberries, raspberries, grapes, and honeydew in it. At the time those were all fruits that Ben wasn’t that into. He might eat a bite or two, but generally he didn’t eat much. The salad had a dressing with ginger, a bit of honey, and a few other things. Oh my, it was so good. Ben agreed. He hoovered practically all the fruit we gave him. (No honeydew though, that one is still on the outs with Ben.) We took the leftovers home to have with dinner and Ben finished it off. Since then, he has loved grapes and raspberries, even without the dressing on them. Score for liking more fruit!
Of course the fruit salad was quite red. This made for a wonderful photo op.

As you can see, Ben cleaned up nicely afterwards. There was still a cute kid under that mess. 🙂
