I’ve often mentioned that my two little spices are very picky eaters. Little Miss Spice hardly eats any vegetables and doesn’t like foods to be mixed together so it’s very difficult to hide or disguise foods I want her to eat. Master Spice will try vegetables but won’t eat any fruit. He generally likes meat but doesn’t really like carbs.
As a food blogger and someone who loves healthy foods, trying new foods and experimenting with flavours I sometimes wonder what I’ve done wrong! I’m always looking for new ideas to try to tempt them into eating different foods. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. The difficult thing is not getting discouraged when it doesn’t work and to keep trying.
So, to help motivate me and to give my little spices and me something fun that we can do together with food, I’ve decided to start my very first YouTube channel focusing on food art, making simple pictures with food that will hopefully encourage my little ones to try new foods. They will tell me what they want me to make and I will do my best to create. So far we have made a tiger and a duck and I’ve been asked to make a hippo! I’m not quite sure how to make a hippo yet so I might have to come back to that one later and ask for another idea for now.
I have no experience at all in making videos so they will be short and simple but hopefully I can provide some inspiration for others with picky eaters as well as having a little creative fun in the process. I’ll write an update on here every so often letting you know how it’s going and if I’ve managed to persuade the little spices to try a few new things.
My channel is called Will My Kid Eat This? so please take a look and let me know if you try any of my ideas.
And here are Little Miss Spice and Master Spice deciding whether to eat the tigers. Little Miss Spice did eat the cream cheese on the cracker so there was some success!
