$50 Amex #giveaway from @RaguSauce

Two kids with opposing food preferences

+

two parents always on the go for work

 X

It doesn't take a genius in New Math to figure this one out. 

X = infinite dinnertime struggles

So, it's no surprise this new video campaign from Ragu hits home and cracks me up.  Check it out:

Thankful I've never had to do anything THAT over the top to get the kids to eat.  But some nights I feel like it.  Maybe I should try it.  Think it would work?

Ragu asked last year's Mom's the Word Ambassadors to help spread the word about their new Ragu Asks video campaign.  So far, they are all interesting and funny and I plan to watch them all.  In return they gave me... wait for it... a $50 Amex giftcard to giveaway.

Want to win?

I pretended I was an airplane and their mouths were the airport, and I soared all over the kitchen with the spoon to distract them!

I pretended to eat the food and rubbed my tummy and smiiled and acted like I loved the food so my son would want to try it.

We allow our daughter to put ketchup on EVERYTHING to get her to eat. It's disgusting, but it works.

Told my two daughters to pretend that they were Godzilla feeding on trees, in an attempt to get 'em to eat broccoli.

Embarrassing?

I JUST TELL MY KIDS IF THEY DON'T EAT...NO TRIP TO HERSHEY PARK AND IT HAS ALWAYS WORKED...I DON'T MAKE THEM EAT FOOD THEY REALLY DON'T LIKE AND I KNOW WHAT THEY LIKE AND DON'T

I once told the kids that brussel sprouts were a fruit - that wasn't a good thing to do.
It didn't work anyway.
Thank you.

I've "entertained" my kids with corney jokes, a soft-shoe dance, peek-a-boo, silly faces...just about made fool of my self so they'd take a bite of food. But they're worth it.
