How to make mealtimes even more exciting for your mini munchers

Getting the kids to eat can sometimes be as much a chore as making the food. Children can be as just as discerning eaters as adults, so it needs to be the right combination of looking and tasting good, but it doesn’t need to be elaborate to win them over.



It’s all about tempting the youngsters to give whatever is on their plate a try and a great way to do this is to engage their imaginations as much as their tastebuds.

These fun recipes are easy to make and combine simple ingredients with appealing presentation.

You can improvise and add food your child likes to make each meal really enjoyable.

Best of all, because they’re not difficult to do, you can get your youngster to help you prepare the food if they’re old enough. Even seemingly simple tasks like unwrapping items can make them feel part of the process.

Have fun!
