Daddy: Alfie do you want toast this morning?
Alfie: No Daddy
Daddy: What about spiderman toast?
Alfie: Yes please
Many parents know this trick of renaming foods that their little eaters don't think they want to eat to gain their interest.
I was just the same. My parents still laugh when remembering that they had to give traditional meals an exotice name like Shepherds pie would be renamed moussaka; I would then have 2 helpings.
So start thinking about what makes your little ones tick (as sure you are aware of) and then tap into this and get creative with your meal options by renaming your meals. It worked for Alfie and I, so maybe it will help your little fussy eaters too.
Love to hear your ideas too. Please drop me a message/comment.
