Would your kids eat this?
A home made “LCM” bar – basically marshmallows and a little butter melted and mixed through rice bubbles and mini M&Ms. I was in the shops with another mum who was planning on making this for her daughter. Thinking that I never make (or buy) this sort of stuff for my kids I decided to buy the ingredients and make up a batch for them as a bit of a treat. It looked good….but my kids would not eat it. Too sweet! We had to take it to school and hand it out to other people’s kids…who did seem to enjoy it. It was rather funny to see how embarrassed my kids were about being unwilling to eat it. Tara said “it’s just that I have already eaten a few sweet things today mum, I am sure I will have some tomorrow…”. And Sam said “I am just leaving it here for a few minutes, I will be back to eat it later…”. They sheepishly avoided me (and the slice) for the rest of the evening. And the next morning they very eagerly agreed to take it in to school to hand out at netball training.
