My dilemma is wondering what can I do to make them quit eating something w/o calories. They do eat cottage cheese w/fruit sometimes but won't eat every night. Feel like have group of babies that want their candy.
ITK, actually, I'm not a big dessert eater. If I have dessert, trust me it will be a super-duper no calories-barred dessert - usually if I go out to dinner - or a special event - or just because I want it. I'm more of a fruit and cheese eater.
I do like the little ice cream cups that come in vanilla w chocolate swirls or strawberry swirls; and keep them in the freezer when I want a little something. They come about 12 to a pkg.
How about frozen yogurt or making frozen yogurt pops? I keep raisins around and love cottage cheese as well. Perhaps trail mix, GORP - good old raisins and peanuts. You can add dried fruit like apricots, apples, and chocolate pretzels, mini marshmallows
For me, one mallowmar, did the trick. Remember those?
Or bananas dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts and frozen on a stick.
