Oh my GOD don't "make up" with your friend because you need a maid of honor.

Make up with your friend because you miss her and want her to be your friend again. If getting married made you realize that you want her back in your life because no one (except Future Husband, hopefully) has meant as much to you as she has, that's a good opener, but if you're like "hey let's be friends again, OH BTW I am getting married will you be my maid of honor?"... That's a NOPETOPUS.

Nicole I feel you on this one!

The Bergy Bits eat Nutella toast for breakfast pretty much every day, but it's on whole wheat bread. They eat "mogurt" pretty often but it's a less candy-flavored yogurt than most, a department store brand one. So on that score I guess try to find the less sugary versions of the sugary things she will eat?

Has she tried spaghetti and learned to spin her fork? She may not be as easily amused at 4 as the BBs are at 2.5, but they like eating things that involve tricks.

Also oven fries & ketchup are vegetables and you can make healthy pizzas on pita bread for pretty cheap - maybe she is old enough to help out when making things, like she could choose what she wanted to put on the pizza and help put it on, and sprinkle the cheese?

I do not subscribe to this ridiculous theory that we have to "trick" kids into eating vegetables - it's what's for fucking dinner, eat the vegetables or go hungry (ok I will make you a grilled cheese toast before bed if you don't eat the dinner though)
