    Default Creative ways to get your kids to eat? Suggestions needed :)

    Hi Ladies
    I've posted in here about my extremely fussy eating 3 year old who is very unwilling to try new things. But I made him dinner the other day using animal cookie cutters so they looked like animals and he responded really well to it. I know this wont last forever so was looking for other ideas that make your food look interesting and what you've tried with success?
    Thanks

    I once chopped fruit and placed on skewers, my ds loved that.

    Sometimes if he wants a non-healthy snack (the latest is marshmallow snowballs), I tell him he must eat some fruit with it. So he usually grabs a handful of raspberries (latest fad too) and eats them together.

    Smiley face pizza (use an English muffin)
    Cut sandwiches into shapes, roll them out a bit with a rolling pin & use cookie cutters
    **Maybe let him try 3 different veggies/fruit and ask him to choose his favourite, then you can concentrate on adding that one thing to his diet and build it from there.

    Does he like to dip?
    Mine will eat almost anything with a little pot of sour cream or natural yoghurt for dipping

    No forget the vegie sticks, mine doesn't eat vegie sticks either but will now (after many months) happily dip chunks of frittata, thin slices of lamb, baked pumpkin (it's very sweet), ravioli or pasta pieces, pitta bread, grilled capsicum pieces, cherry toms etc
