Stella's Food

Stella is a fickle eater....at best. I went through a period of time fighting her to eat her food....every day and every meal. I finally started a new approach. I learned that she will eat her food if it is presented in a fun way. Now she is excited to eat her fun food. A favorite is salami and cream cheese sandwiches....with cheese on the side.

Do these pictures invite valid mockery? Yes
Am I over the top? Yes
Did this stop my food battle with Stella? Yes
A few extra steps with a cookie cutter is worth it to me.

I heart Stella

Stella is Latin for STAR!! (Also a tasty beer)

This was supposed to be a sunshine, but Stella thought it looked more like a flower.

Creepy Dorito girl...REDRUM!!


A bunny in some grass....with a fish rainbow

Yes, that's right....this is a GIRL bear....with green eyelashes.

Jack and Jill went up the hill.
To be reincarnated as gingerbread kids.

A smiling turtle

Ahhhhh....sank you, sank you verdy much!!

And this would be my meal.
Sandwich crusts, turkey slices, & the last few bites of yogurt.
Being a mom is awesome.
