|My apple "fries"|
Very rarely does our three year-old eat fries anymore. In fact, as I'm typing this, I can't remember the last time I fed him any!
Our son's diet consists of home-canned applesauce, bananas, raisins, steamed broccoli (loves this stuff!), home grown green beans, occasionally peas, homemade bread, and potatoes. He won't really eat anything else.
Last week after posting a link to tips about how to encourage kids to try new foods, I was inspired. I let Matthew help me make "apple fries." He helped by throwing the cores away while I cut the apple into fry-size sticks. I grabbed a "special" bowl for him and he devoured them!
He usually tells me he doesn't like apples, only applesauce.

When I was little, I remember my mom making me "octopuses" by microwaving hot dogs after cutting one half into what looked like tentacles. I'd never feed my son processed meat, but she had a great concept: making food fun.
What ways do you make food fun for your children?
