pinterest picks {kids corner}

First of all, thanks to everyone for their great advice yesterday. I read every single comment and REALLY appreciate all of the opinions and information. A few things I have learned:

soy milk really isn't as healthy as I thought it was
soy milk isn't good for boys in large quantities
he is "filling up" on his milk, therefore he doesn't eat
I will choose my battles more wisely
the problem is NOT just with sippy cups
I need to order the book Love and Logic
the sippy cup is something he will outgrow
being a good mom takes lot of work!
and lastly,
I am going to try and make eating more fun...
so my pinterest picks for today are from my board
.................
Susan Yuen has tons of fabulous ideas for making sandwich eating fun!
.........................
made up this cute game of Go Fish!
.......................
This idea is found over at Another Lunch .
She made lunch super fun and spooky using a muffin tin!

How cute are these apple smiles from Family Go

What a fun way to get your child to eat more veggies from Real Simple. Roll the dice to see how many more he has to eat before he can be excused.

Fun ideas. These might even encourage the picky eaters. I wouldn't mind a lunch or snack like these for myself. Thanks for sharing.

Kadie said...

This is great!! I have a picky eater too and I hope some of these ideas help. And I was glad you asked your question yesterday because I got some good advise too!

I love those ideas. I think i just might try some with Tyler, although he is a lot better about eating. Katie loves everything but the sippy cup and milk go hand in hand otherwise she will not drink it. It is a battle at our house too. Good luck!

That is such a fun collection! Thanks for putting it together. I really should put a bit more effort into my kids food.

Glad you are finding ways to overcome your challenges :) If you want a TON more ideas, search for "muffin tin mondays". There's a blog about just that, and there is everything from easy-simple to the most extravagant! My 6yo will try anything if I put it in a muffin tin on a Monday!

Thanks for featuring our fishing game! My son LOVES going fishing, and he is slowly working toward actually eating the celery fishing pole. I love all of the other ideas that you posted too. I'm going to have to try some of them myself!

Meet the Dubiens is a great site - she does Fun with Food Fridays every week. And another one is Muffin Tin Monday. She does links on Mondays showing all kinds of muffin tin ideas. I do Muffin Tins on Mondays too and my boys really love them. That is the best day they eat lunch!
