It’s not that she won’t eat, or that she’s fussy with her food, she just won’t sit still long enough to eat it, and even if she does, your dinner always looks better. Cue half an hour of swapping food, and then she doesn’t want any. Frustrated, and more than a little annoyed at all the food that was being wasted (read ‘wasted’ as ‘that I ate’) I took to the internet in search of advice.
Apparently, when I just chuck some food together on a plate it just isn’t appetising enough for her, even though she eats things out of the bin, and anything she finds behind other things. The food needs to be more interesting for her preferably in the shape of things she likes. I don’t know about you, but I find putting faces on food a bit strange. Why would you want to eat something that is smiling at you? Undeterred, I did as was suggested and used what I had to make her dinner a little more interesting. I present, The Very Hungry Caterpillar in sandwich form!
Well, kind of! He has a tomato for his head, four strawberries, 3 plums (grapes) and some cheese. I used small biscuit cutters to make his body. I have to say I was sceptical, but lo and behold
A clean plate and a happy mummy!
