How To Get Picky Eaters to Try New Foods

How To Get Picky Eaters to Try New Foods

As a mother, I have been lucky enough to have 2 girls who LOVE to eat.  Unfortunately, I have many girlfriends who complain constantly about their kids not eating or trying new foods. This is a frustration shared by many parents, and I am here to help. Since having children, healthy, fun meals have become a priority in my life. This is why I began making BENTOS. I have had a blast making bento box meals for my girls.

I know many of you are thinking, "I don't have the time for that." Well, bento boxes can be simple to very detailed.... it all depends on how much time you have to spend on this lunch making project. Bento boxes can be as easy as cutting cheese and carrots into stars and hearts using small cookie cutters, or making a sandwiches look like a smile face with olive eyes and a carrot smile. Kids will dig this fun twist on foods, making them want to eat.

Another fun option I love  are Muffin Tin Meals. I don't know about you, but I love to sample a ton of food at my meals, and so do my kiddos. Muffin tin meals are perfect for just that. It is also a great way to serve up any small leftovers you might have.....a way to get rid of those last 4 chips in the bottom of the bag, that last pickle sitting in the jar, the one piece of cheese calling your name, etc...  There are a ton of different muffin tins out there for you to try out. Regular muffin tins, mini tins, silicone tins. The muffin tins in the picture were purchased at Target in the dollar section... SCORE! Just fill each muffin cup with a taste of different foods. And remember, food is fun!

we love family fresh meals! i've just made a lunch for some picky eaters, using some of chef corey's muffin tin meals. my current secret weapon is to let the kids use children's chop sticks. it makes everything more exciting!
