Apple Sauce and Ketchup lotion

My daughter 2 years old uses ketchup and apple sauce as lotion. She puts it all over her face and arms. I really don't want to have to sit and watch her eat every time she eats. Does anyone have any idea what I could do to get her to stop doing this?

  • It'll be messy for a few weeks, but she will grow out of it.

  • annon is right just a phase she will grow out of it. I find often that the more you tell a toddler not to do something they do it more. If you don't give her the desired reaction she will stop sooner or later. Just act like it's no big deal wash it off and move on.

  • My daughter LOVES lotion- buy her her own (huggies, johnson & johnson, whatever) so she has her own. And just like someone else said- tell her 'no no' when she tries to use food- just let her finish eating and then give her the real lotion.
