What is worse then trying to get a young child to eat?? If you are a parent you probably got the answer to this right.lol NOTHING! As a mom of three wonderful children I have come across about every situation possible when it comes to feeding children. It is the wrong color, this smells funny, this tastes funny.....what you know I am talking about. Well obviously nothing can fix those but I have found a way to make food FUN! Funbites is an inventive new way to help get your child to eat. I picked the heart shape cutter because....well...my youngest is a girl and EVERYTHING is better if it is a heart right ;o). I have tried cutting everything from watermelon to peanut butter and jelly. The only real problem I found is my daughter likes heavy jelly and my bread broke and jelly squished out haha. I had her helping to cut it though and she just giggled. Having her help me really has not only made eating fun but preparing her food fun! At $12.99 this would make a great Christmas gift for any parent! You can buy them HERE! Make sure to check out them out on Facebook and Twitter where the fun is always ready to eat.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
