But I have a secret weapon, during a day time low I have handi snacks! She loves them and NEVER (as of yet) has argued when it is time to have a handi snack (14-16 grams of carbs depending on the brand you get). They also come in peanut butter, but don't tell Cara that because Kirstin (Cara's baby sister) has a peanut allergy so we are stuck with cheese or should I say CHEEZ (whatever that is)!!
Of course night time lows are a little more tricky, it is a fight most of the time with Cara NEVER wanting anything, but to go back to sleep....who can blame her. Can you imagine being woken up from a dead sleep and force to eat or drink something? No thank you!!
So night time lows we usually go for juice drinks that have straws, because that is the easiest way to get something in a sleeping, crying, flailing, 4 year old's mouth. We also fall back on apple sauce or yogurt and only vanilla yogurt, Cara does not like any other flavor! These work great because she does not have to chew :)
