So you have a picky eater? Trying to get him or her to eat those veggies (especially those peas or that tricky rice?) Why not try this great product from Constructive Eating. I admit, I found their product on Daily Grommet, one of my favorite sites for fun 'stuff.' Not always things I need, but often very clever solutions to problems that have been plaguing me! Or in this case possibly you.
I don't think I know a single parent who hasn't fought the battle of getting their child to 'eat their veggies' or 'clean their plate.' Or to hold their utencils properly. Constructive Eating has utencils that look like a bulldozer or other construction vehicles like fork lifts etc. Just watch the video and see how these are designed to introduce children to proper eating and making it a fun experience. They also have a placemat that helps children learn the proper placement for utencils so they can help you set the table--a child is never to young to learn as long as you keep it fun!
Watch the video to see how these great products were developed by two parents, who just like you and me have fought the fight and found a better way to get their son invested in eating.
These products are cute and fun for kids who use them and for adults who can now say "THANK YOU Constructive Eating! Mealtimes are no longer a battle. Dinner is now a tranquil experience! (Or as close to it as it ever will be until the kids move out!)
