Yes, you SHOULD play with your food.
Sarah Gonzalez is a mother of SIX who makes elaborate and amazing food art creations for her kids. She shares them with the world via her Instagram account, Lunarbell Lunch.
This lunch, btw, is made from colored mozzarella cheese and yogurt, lettuce, snap peas, purple and orange cauliflower, and garnished with an orange slice sun. What what!!!
The California mom began crafting the cool creations after her 4-year-old daughter started acting extra fussy at mealtimes.
« She would complain and throw temper tantrums over everything I offered her, » Gonzales said in an interview with Nanny magazine. « I started researching different ways to encourage her to eat better and that is where I discovered the world of creative food! »
She often uses the food creations as a way to sneak healthy foods into her kids’ diets.
Like, for instance, celery. « [My daughter] refused to eat celery, » Gonzalez told the magazine. « When I presented it to her before the start of my fun lunches she would not eat it. Then I made a lunch with a cute little panda and some thinly cut celery that was positioned to look like bamboo. She ate every piece of that celery on her plate and asked for more, no questions or complaints! »
