Don't Play With Your Food!!

27 October 2010

foodFace "Don't play with your food!!"

How many times have you heard that in your lifetime?

It didn't have to be directed at you of course, you never played with your food did you...

I'm not a big fan of messing around with kids' food - Big Cook Little Cook makes me want to poke my eyes out with the horrors that they come up with.

Am I just being an old grouch? Probably! It won't have been the first time *grin* But what's wrong with kids eating food when it hasn't been turned into a football pitch or a something that vaguely resembles a happy face pizza?

Nothing at all, but what if your child won't eat much of anything that you put in front of them?

All of the 'they'll eat when they're hungry' comments won't stop you from wanting to get as much food into them as possible, by any MEANS possible!

So what do you think of this food face plate?

Do you think it would be a help or hinderance in the daily drama that can be meal times with kids?

Not having been on the receiving end of kids who don't inhale their food as soon as it's hit the plate, I've  no opinion on this either way although I am thinking that for £6.95, and kids who will eat anything, they could be a bit of fun.

But for picky eaters, could it be the difference between eating or not or might it just make the situation worse?

Have you tried this sort of thing? Did it work for you?

Let us know!

    I have one of these plates and it is great fun for adults but thoroughly impractical for kids. The plate is made of china and easily breakable. If they made it in plastic then brilliant, but in china is only for adult use (or thoroughly trustworthy and responsible kids - in which case you would not need to entice them with face food fun).

    I must be a really lazy or lucky mother, because that just seems like way too much effort to me. Cute for fun, sure, but practical at dinner time? I don't think so.

What do you think?
