I've not experienced the agony and worry that faces some parents whose children don't eat very much; where every mealtime is a struggle and the cause of much family tension.
I'm not a big fan of messing around with food to make it 'fun' - Big Cook, Little Cook and their hideous culinary creations made me want to poke my eyes out with forks - BUT if it works, then it works and I'm not going to argue with that.
My youngest son was/is digger crazy and if he'd been a fussy eater as a child then I'd certainly have added this Constructive Eating Digger Cutlery set to our eating utensil collection.
I'm sure it would take ages to eat with them and your carefully crafted shepherds pie may well resemble a building site before any of it gets shovelled into the mouth but, again, if the eating objective is achieved is there anything wrong with that?
On the whole, fussy eating phases pass and if things like this Constructive Eating digger cutlery help to ease the frustrating times then HURRAH!
I've found various places that sell them, stock is limited in some and out of stock in others, but it'll be worth keeping an eye on all of them.
- I Want One Of Those (via Amazon) £9.99 plus £1.99 delivery
- Lazyboneuk.com - £11.99 plus £3.49 delivery
- Gettingpersonal.co.uk - £12.99 plus £2.99 delivery (currently out of stock)
I definitely think go with I Want One Of Those don't you?! They only have five left in stock though so I'd hurry up and grab a set if you want one.
