The Young Critic Part II: Get Silly

Meal times at our home, are a time for family. It’s a time for us to talk, laugh, and have a good time. We even sometimes play board games during dinner, go for a picnic, or even eat outside in our own backyard.

Meals don’t have to be serious. You can make them fun and silly. In fact, I’ve found that my children are more likely to eat something that amuses them or appeals to their interests.

So, I put sprinkles (a.k.a. sparkles) on cottage cheese and yogurt, bacon smiles and apple eyes on pancakes, and a dot of pink food coloring in oatmeal.

Not all of our meals are this colorful or exciting, but sometimes making your meal a bit silly can be fun for the entire family and much more fun to gobble down!
