  •  Nope. And it sounds dreadful. :) (8+ / 0-)

    It seemed like such a good idea at the time. We were out of milk this morning, and cranberry juice was on such a good sale last week that we have a good bit of it. I often add dried or fresh cranberries to our morning oatmeal, so it seemed promising.

    Breakfast was nearly inedible. Foul. Nasty. Gross.

    The kids preemptively refused to eat it, and got grilled cheese and apples instead, lucky things.

    K2 and The Boy are having the same eating issue. He now weighs less than his little sister (ages 7 and 4). I don't know how to get him to eat--let me know anything that works for you. :(

      This might work. My kids too were really picky eaters, but they loved Donald Duck Eggs, even though they weren't shaped like Donald Duck. I think they just liked the name, so maybe name things your kids will eat.(?) More huuuggggs and here's to kids eating!

    •  K2 has lost about 10% of her body weight (6+ / 0-)

      in the last two months, so I'm getting desperate.  So far peanut butter mixed with her tears is about the only things we've got going on in the morning.
      All other foodstuffs have ended up down the disposal.

      Morning Shuruq! Hugggggs for living through breakfast nightmares... I'm right there with ya!

      •  Is it the new medicine that's causing her (4+ / 0-)

        to lose the weight? Gosh, Kgirls, I wish I could help. Does she like chocolate-banana shakes?

        •  yeah -- ever since starting on the medication (4+ / 0-)

          she's not hungry. She can't have milk or ice cream with the meds -- and she can't have anything with food coloring because it makes her batshit insane. So the food list gets shorter and shorter and she gets smaller and smaller.  But again, she loves eggs and your idea will make breakfast fun for her -- and it hasn't been fun in a long time!

          The doctor is trying to get us an appointment with a nutritionist sometime soon, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed we can get something going here...

            Part of my family (2 daughters, son-in-law, and two children) have been on a very horrendous diet--no sugar, no soy, no milk products, nothing with caffene, no starches.  I stayed with them last year before Christmas and about died.  I finally had to break down and get some instant coffee, but otherwise followed their diet...eggs, meat, brown rice.  Just know that the Krew has you in our thoughts and prayers.

        I can well imagine you're going nuts.  I know I would be.

        Mega hugs!

    •  potato chip chicken fingers (2+ / 0-)

      not for breakfast, usually, though.

      Take a bag of potato chips, smash with a rolling pin into crumbs. Make an egg wash with a beaten egg and some water (or milk or cream). Cut a chicken breast into strips (about two inches wide), and dip the strips into the egg wash, then into the potato chip crumbs, pressing to adhere the crumbs.

      Put the strips onto a rack on a baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn. Continue baking for about 15 minutes more, or until strips are done.

      I defy any kid to resist these.
