Taming the Princess Part 3: Eat!

pr1062p-300I long resisted the idea that if you “dress up” food, kids will eat it. Turns out though, it really works.

Case in point: The Grilled Cheese Example. Untouched after the old “offer it 5-10 times to let her get used to it” routine. Next day, same sandwich, gobbled down with glee after being punched into a star, moon, and well — you can see the picture.

Don’t throw away the “wasted” scraps around the shape because you know Daddy will eat them. Pink Tiara Cookie Cutter: about $2.

Sometimes my kids will go for this; sometimes not, though!
