The Disney way to eating meatballs!

In Denmark, where we live, meatballs (in Danish "frikadeller") are more or less a national food. So when your children do not eat them it's kind of frowned upon.... Well, the princess has been loving them for years now so she's in the clear but the little man is not a meat eater.
It has never bothered me or the daddy that the little man didn't eat meat. I was convinced he'll eat it when he felt the need to and I was right. Yesterday he was watching Disney's Lady and the Tramp. He was very fascinated and loved the scene where they share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs.
He asks "Mummy, can we have spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tomorrow?"

"Of course we can!"

So for dinner tonight that's what we had! Drum roll please......
The little man ate all his meatballs! Yeah, he's in the clear now too..... Woop Woop!

All it took was a Disney film.
