Kenya's obsession with sweet corn lives on! I'm a huge believer in providing children with as much diversity as possible when it comes to them trying to new foods. I also think it's important to change up their diet regularly so you don't get stuck with a kid who only wants to eat the same thing at every meal. But at this 
time of year when corn is so crisp, sweet and delicious, I want it morning, noon, and night. So, I try to come 
up with tons of corn dishes to keep with my philosophy of diversity.

Growing up in Kentucky, corn pudding was a staple dish for us. Of course the 
corn pudding down south usually consists of tons of cream. Tasty? Yes. A little to heavy for little ones? Definitely yes. In the weelicious version, I wanted the corn 
to be the real star instead of the cream and butter. This dish took 
three minutes to whip up and when I served it to Kenya for the first 
time, he ate half the dish for dinner! I know. My kid's got a bottomless pit for a stomach, especially when he loves something.
Sweet corn is packed with fiber and is a great source of beta-
carotene, folic acid and vitamin B3. Needless to say, there were a lot 
of corn pellets in his poop the next day (TMI? Sorry!), but he appeared to love every bite.

    I made this with 3 ears of corn and it came out okay, but I feel there was too much egg in the recipe for the small amount of corn.

    I overcooked this a little b/c it wasn't done at 30 min and then i forgot (note to self: always reset the timer). So, it was kind of dried out more than it was supposed to be, butI didn't think it had a lot of flavor, but my kids still gobbled it up!
