The day that I filmed the segment with Ali Landry on Yahoo's “Spotlight To Nightlight”, whenever we weren’t shooting the crew was talking about their kids. After all, kids are a parent’s favorite subject. When one of the fathers on the shoot recommended this recipe to me, I must have looked at him like he had two heads. At first I was wary of the idea because it sounded kind of gross! But never one to judge a book by its cover or to shy away from giving a recipe or an idea a try, I decided to whip up a batch of my own.
I wasn't exactly sure how Kenya and his buddy would react when they first saw green peas in popsicle form, and I didn't have huge expectations. So much for expectations -- they loved them. I guess the mere idea of peas on a stick were hilarious to them because they were fascinated. It just goes to show that you can’t impose your own thoughts on what you think your kids will and won’t like. Keep an open mind always and you will be amazed by the foods they’ll like to eat.
For all the parents out there that can't get their little ones to try a green vegetable, give these a try!
