Food Desperation

Lately, I have been having a hard time getting Big and Edith to sit and eat a good lunch. With the blood sugar issues my kids have, it just doesn't fly. Not getting enough of the right kind of foods in them always leads to trouble later. Out of desperation, I have been occasionally resorting to some food fun. I looked back and was surprised to see that it has been almost exactly 5 years since I gave it a go the last time. I don't know why I stopped, because it's amazing how fast the food disappears when I do it. 

Here are a few photos of what has come from my food desperation:

(Yes, I realize the dinosaur looks like he's floating. He was jumping up to reach the leaf. For real.)

Okay, I'll admit it. Even though I made the meals out of desperation, it was really pretty fun. And all I know is that it works. Having well-fed kids is so nice that I might even keep it up for a while.
