My son doesn’t eat a variety of foods it drives me nuts. My brother does cute food like this for his kids, they eat everything. I guess that means if you don’t do cute food they don’t eat. :) Thanks for these fun guides!

Isn’t is funny what they are willing to try if it’s presented in a “fun” way, if they get to help make it?
