Food Challenge!

I am always re-introducing hard boiled eggs to the boys in hopes they will like them eventually. Today I decided to entice them with some cute colored fish and car molded eggs. I even added all the other bento fabulous foods including checkered apples, chocolate swirl sandwiches, cheese on a pick and carrot flowers. If all that weren't enough I put the salt and pepper in that adorable little container. So here's the trick when it comes to getting your kids to eat some not so favorite foods. First try making it cute. If the cute doesn't work then dare them. We have food challenge occasionally in our lunches. The boys are given a challenge or sort of dare and often times that does the trick! Sometimes they are rewarded when they get home from school with a treat for eating the lunch challenge item. I don't know how long this will work but it's been very effective so far!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I love the apple and swirl sandwiches. My daughter is allergic to eggs, but I would happily eat those eggs!

  2. How in the world did you make the hard boiled eggs in shapes and colors? They are TOO CUTE!!!
