Going Bananas in a Commercial Sort of Way

When the kids are hungry they are allowed to eat unlimited fruit or grab a yogurt. Annah is our big fruit eater. It isn't uncommon for her to ask for a banana or even two! But she is a demanding little customer; she always wants the banana that has a sticker on it. Over the weekend we had bananas but none with stickers on them. So she selected her banana and decided she'd only eat it if it had stickers. Off we went to find some and she had about 10 stickers on the banana when she declaired it was then okay to eat. This concept may be key to having children eat their fruits and veggies; if they all came with stickers children would be happy and it would be so much better than happy meals with toys!
