Good morning all, and welcome to another Fun Food Friday! Have you been making any fun food recently? Whether it be lovely lunches, creative cakes, or a recipe you’ve blogged, please do join in the link up below and share the inspiration around.
What a week this has been for Eats Amazing and for me! If you follow me regularly you may have noticed that I haven't posted for a week, quite simply I haven't had the chance as I've been dealing with the incredible response I've received as a result of this article in the Daily Mail. I've been missing my blogging though, so I'm very happy that I've managed to grab a moment to write up this quick blog post!
As you can see from the amount of shares above it turned out to be a pretty popular article, and although it inspired some 'lovely' negative comments, I have been blown away by the huge amount of positive feedback from so many wonderful people, friends and strangers alike, who commented, shared, emailed and tweeted me as the story went viral. Thank you from the bottom of my heart you lovely people, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support!
Small Child was chuffed to bits to see himself pictured 'in the news', even if he was made out to be a fussy eater (he isn't!) - and he has been proudly telling anyone that will listen that he's now famous! Although that's not strictly true, I thought it would be fun to make a star themed lunch for my little star, to celebrate his little moment in the limelight.
In this lunch Small Child had a wholemeal pitta bread, cut into stars using a star shaped cookie cutter, a hard boiled egg, shaped into a star using an egg mould, fresh coconut chunks (under the grapes) and red grapes topped with star shaped food picks, raw red pepper strips (under the carrot) and raw organic carrot, cut into star shapes using a mini bento cutter, and some organic natural yoghurt, which I froze the night before into star shapes using a fun ice cube tray from IKEA. I filled the small dip compartment with organic houmous, and added a small blunt plastic knife to his lunch bag so that he could spread it on the pitta bread stars. I also added a spoon from our mini bento cutlery set for his yoghurt.
Small Child really enjoyed this lunch - all that was left when he got home was one grape and a couple of chunks of coconut, which he promptly finished off as soon as he saw them!
