Star theme lunch today ... just because stars are pretty.
Four mini peanut butter sandwiches (I used my sandwich cutter/sealer) with little stars cut out from fruit roll-up. In the pink container are some cantaloupe and cucumber stars and I also included the scraps because I think they are pretty too but you can't really see them. Willow didn't seem very hungry today - didn't want her snack earlier and didn't eat much of her lunch, even the PB sandwich so it was probably a bad day to add cucumber to her lunch but I just felt like it needed some green. But it turns out it was a good idea because she ate it!
I'm really starting to have faith in the theory that if you continue to offer your kids foods they don't like, it might change their minds, even if it's after 20 times of putting it on their plate. She even said, 'yum' as opposed to 'blegh' as she ate them! I think sometimes at this age they don't really know what they like and just go by their eyes and how appealing the food is. Which is why I'm such a big fan of bento :D
