Ethan doesn’t eat ice cream, I think it’s because it is cold. He has been offered many ice creams on hot sunny days and they are always flatly rejected.
Last week we had dinner at our local Harvester, the kid’s meal comes with a dessert and it’s something we always turn down for Ethan as it is always ice cream. However the Harvester had the option of a fruit salad. Apparently Ethan has been making and trying fruit salad at school so we ordered one for him.
For a kids dessert I was quite impressed at the fruit salads size, it also came with a side of ice cream
To our surprise Ethan tucked into his dessert, but it wasn’t the fruit he decided to eat he got stuck into the ice cream. He actually ate the whole portion, except for the cherry which he let me have. He also gave the game away that his teacher must like cherries too as he called the cherry her name.
It was lovely to see Ethan enjoying the ice cream. I know it isn’t a healthy option and probably has more sugar than guide lines allow, but it gives us hope that we all might be able to enjoy an ice cream cone with a flake on hot sunny days.
