Inspiration For Getting Picky Eaters To Eat!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

We are pleased to bring back our fabulous guest, Emily, from the amazing blog “Small Fry”, who is here today to share some lunch inspiration for those picky eaters in your family. We all have them :) Take it away, Emily!

If you need to entice a picky eater, or just want to surprise your kids with an exciting lunch, today’s food art is your guy! You can’t beat the vibrant colors that come from fresh produce, so these are especially healthy options.


A whale PB&J (whale cookie cutter found at Copper Gifts), rainbow fruit salad, and a red pear hot hair balloon were on the menu one day a couple weeks ago and the boys haven’t stopped asking for whale sandwiches ever since! As always, if you make food art (or any of our other projects) post them to our Facebook Page, we’d love to see what you come up with!

Thanks, Emily! I am going to have to invest in some of those adorable sandwich cookie cutters! Great inspiration! Now…I’m off to make me some lunch!

      Kids are so much more likely to try healthy food when it's displayed in a fun way with lots of bright colors & shapes - I always appreciate any mom who tries and shares it with the rest of us! Thanks!

      Those are awfully cute... But don't really help me get my picky eaters to eat the chicken, potatoes, and beans I've spent the last hour preparing... :)
