Those ideas are so cute! I always think kids eat more healthy food if it is presented in a way that makes it more fun. :)

We all know that most of our children don’t eat vegetables. That is why i really like idea and the concept of healthy snack that you share with us. And i’m sure that they will enjoy this delicious snack. Thanks for the healthy post!

Those are great ideas on how to get more fruits and vegetables into young kids! They all look like they would be very fun. A friend of mine does “Muffin Tin Mondays” where she does “meals” in muffin tins.

These are the ways to encourage kids to eat vegetables and fruits. All those designs in the photos are cute and attractive. I think there are many kids that will encourage to it all of it.

Wow, I just discovered your blog and I love it! There is so much great stuff. I really loved this post–I have the pickiest toddler ever! Ok, so that’s probably an exaggeration, but I just can’t get her to eat anything! (Other than milk, raisins, cheerios, and thanks to her grandparents cookies.)

I have a Teaching Time for Toddlers post with a linky, if you would be interested in sharing at my blog I would LOVE to have you! (Share as many kiddo relevant posts that you’d like!)

These are all wonderful, creative ideas! I had a hard time with my kids when they were young with a lot of foods, but I did try my best to make it fun to eat.

I’ve entered to win a book on kid’s being picky eaters so this post interested me. I think the fruit pizza appeals to kids since it sounds like one of their fave foods. Sometimes we have to be sneaky to get in the good nutrition.
