“Yuck! I don’t like oatmeal. Mama, I don’t like oatmeal!”
I live with a 3 and a half year old whose taste buds change on a daily basis. And apparently he is on an oatmeal strike. However, he had no problems eating one of these bad boys.
In fact, it was the raisins that he picked out! He must have thought they were chocolate chips… maybe next time, Bubs… maybe next time.
