On a Stick


My son's favorite word in the English language is "lolly" not lollipop as we would say in this side of the world but "lolly" because all he cares to watch are British cartoons.

Lolly is a fine word and I've been seeing all sorts of things on sticks that could potentially qualify as lollies. These chicken lollies pictured above are pretty fascinating and super delish.

I had them at an event a couple weeks ago along with the cheese cake lollies pictures below.


Check it out, frozen cheese cake balls dipped in chocolate and some crunchy thing.

My head is turning as I'm thinking about all the things I could put on a stick that would persuade my son to eat.  Dinner tonight was rough.

If you could lolly (yes, a verb indeed) something up what would it be? StumbleUpon

Apple slices rolled in cinnamon and sugar, broccoli dipped in cheese sauce (?), pb&j cubes, lightly steamed carrot chunks with a little salt, potato cubes with almost anything... mmmm... now I'm just hungry for food on a stick!

sweet potatoes, what a fabulous idea. I wonder if my son would eat it. Maybe if I dipped it in chocolate.

Maybe winter squash? Could be an easy way to serve it if you don't want to puree. I love the idea of food lollies!

My kid isn't even two and he's RIDICULOUSLY picky. All I hear is "I no like it!" I wonder if the stick trick would work on him...

Damaris said...

my son is becoming picky too. It all happened while I was pregnant with my second and the thought of cooking made me barf so we ate lots of junk. Now I want to feed him real food and he's not in to it.

good luck.

well, actually its funny because the english call lollypops lollypops also. It's what americans call popsicles that the english refer to as lollies (which is short for ice-lollies). Confusing stuff! I'm from England and moved to CT five or so years ago and I get mixed up with this one still! Love your blog btw
