If you have a picky eater, than you know how difficult it is to get them to eat . . . especially healthy stuff that they know are veggies and other stuff they aren’t interested in eating. I’ve tried to beg, plead, compromise, threaten – just about anything and everything to get my picky eater to eat. And more than half the time, I’mÂ unsuccessful. A friend recently introduced me to a product that just might help me:Â Food Face Plates.
These Food Face Plates are cute and so fun! You can choose from a “Mr.” plate or a “Ms.” plate.Â The plates allows your kids to “dress up” the bald Mr. or Ms., which is not only fun, but also allows them to use their imaginations and gets their creative juices flowing!
You take whatever foods you are having for your meal and use them to dress up the face’s eyes, lips and hair. You can add earrings, glasses, a tie or any other items that you can Â imagine. From the Uncommon Goods site where you can purchase the plates comes these ideas:Â mashed potato pearls, sunny-side sunglasses, broccoli bouffant? See? You get the idea!
The plates are dishwasher and microwave safe and are made from hotel-quality, food-safe, high-fire ceramics. This could be an issue if you have young children because if they drop the plate, chances are it will break. And they aren’t cheap; one plate costs $12.99. Â Still, I would be willing to give one a shot for my picky eater – my four year old son. If it works, the $13 would be worth it!
What do you think of these Food Face Plates? Would you purchase them?
