    Hi, I have been following your blog for 2 months πŸ™‚ and I am a mom to a 9mths baby girl. Your blog is interesting & informative too for newbies like us.

    Have you consider bento making for your girl… it catches my eyes as an adult so I guess it catch their sight too. But I have read its hard work maybe you can try a simple one for a start. Head down to Diaso for a start, don’t really need expensive for a start πŸ™‚ Good Luck!

      Hi Christy,
      Nice to know you πŸ™‚ Is your baby a girl or a boy?
      I do have some bento tools as I love all things pretty. I just haven’t got down to putting them together as it looks like a lot of work.

    How did you make that “fish?” So cute! I agree that making food fun is a great way to encourage “fussy” eaters. I also suggest positive peer pressure (getting together with kids her age or older that are good eaters and having them help to encourage her to try new foods.) I also like to get the kids involved in making the food (even the little ones… my just 3 year old loves helping me and telling everyone about what “he” made. I also try changing the environment, utensils, plate etc… my niece refused to eat turkey, but when my sister put a piece on a toothpick she ate it without a problem…

      Hi Julie,
      These are fish cakes shaped in a shape of a fish. These days I try to be more relax if she doesn’t eat, after all she does know how to tell me when she’s hungry. So if she doesn’t eat as much, she’ll ask for more milk.

    yeah sometimes Angel gets fussy too and I try to tell myself to not get so uptight about it and insist that she finishes her bowl of food though I hope to cultivate that habit in her. Yes, they will tell her they are hungry and she eats little snacks here and there and drinks lots of milk. So I guess she’s fine. =) Cute fishcake by the way!

      The fish cakes are so adorable even I would want to eat them πŸ™‚ Yeah Sophie does snack here and there too. I just wished she doesn’t keep asking for biscuits and have more fruits instead.

    Cute fish! It’s fish in the shape of fish. Blows my mind!
    J’s been fussy lately with food. I say to myself that he knows what he needs and it’s not like he’s going to starve. We try to at least make sure he eats from major food groups. If he doesn’t eat the veg, then we give him extra fruit. In the grand scheme of things, I think our kids will get all the nutrients they need. And seriously, why do kids love milk so much?
