I have been at it again.
Ever since I spontaneously made Grace her first "creative lunch" as seen in this blog post, she has not stopped asking for more creativity from me!
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind this at all; in fact, it's great for me to stretch my own mind to come up with new creations.
How do I go about it?
I take a mental inventory of what I have around to use in the snack (or lunch).
I then think of animals, scenes, or shapes that might work with the colors and sizes of what I want to feed her.
These are all healthy, and as I said before in the post I'm sure you just check out above, she always gobbles them all up because they are cute. Doesn't matter how healthy they are!
My favorite part about showing you these concoctions is that I'm positive that you can make them too. It doesn't take technical skill or have tedious steps, it is just good food presented in a cute way.
Which is your fave? Which do you think you might try with the kiddos?
