The little ones they need to eat, but often they are, well, turds about it.

We all know how much little birdies eat.

Having said that, we have stumbled onto some fantastic ideas to make healthy food just a little bit more fun!

{The Nest Can Cook} Bringin’ salad back…

Hi, my name is Kayana and I am addicted to mason jars. Well, actually jars of all types.

I take responsibility for my addiction, well, I blame Pinterest and all other websites that make them look so bloody cool.

The best thing about them is their ability to be used for food. Here is one of my new favourite finds to help bring salad back.. -> Buzzfeed – Mason Jar Salads

So every man and their dog (and cat, and budgie…) have jumped onto to the ‘I’m-a-mad-hipster-because-I-drink/eat-stuff-in-jars’ bandwagon that has taken over of late, including myself! Shit just tastes nicer. I don’t know why but anyway….

Here I have found you tomorrow’s lunch to take to work.
