I think most kids love desserts. My kiddos are no exception... so much so that when they are in a restaurant (any restaurant), the first page that they turn to is the drinks and desserts page. Wooo... they will be discussing animatedly and fighting over who gets to order what. Oogle at the pictures and pick whichever that fancies them. Doesn't matter what we order for their main, their focus is the DESSERTS. Working this to our advantage, we set a rule that they have to finish their main meals before they indulge in their chosen desserts. So they eat super fast :-D.
HQ chose an ice-cold drink of pickled lemon and sour plum juice (not a dessert actually, but we only allow him to drink after meal, so it's treated like one :-))QQ's choice was healthier; little bits of mango, honeydew and sago in shaved mango ice
If we let them, they will finish up the desserts and lap the bowls clean. And cough their lungs out afterwards, especially QQ. So we set another rule... they have to share their desserts with us... haha!
See how much they enjoy them. QQ and her baobei (precious) HQ also had a share of QQ's shaved mango ice.
Do your kids love ice-cold drinks or desserts? Do you bribe them like we do? :-P
