{The Nest Can Cook} How to get your little birds to eat

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

I know my toddler-bird would live on hot chips and fairy bread if given half a chance.

This article from the team at I Quit Sugar gives some great ideas on How To Get Your Kid To Eat Like A Grown Up.

I have to admit, since encouraging (and being more patient) with the toddler-bird in the kitchen she is much more willing to try new foods!eat

Have a read, you won’t regret it.

{The Nest Eats} A crabby apple and pouting worms..

We all know how much little birdies eat.

A lot of time you will spend an hour making something healthy and delicious only to be faced with the wrath of a mini titan demanding only a vegemite sandwich. CUT INTO TRIANGLES – NOT SQUARES – ON THE BLUE PLATE – NOT THE GREEN ONE!

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

Thanks to the team at Lolly Jane for this great collection.

Here are a couple of our favourites!

{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

{The Nest Can Cook} Your lunch tomorrow = sorted with travelling noodles

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.

The Londoner has put together a SENSATIONAL noodle in a jar situation.

P.S We take absolutely no responsibility if your creepy workmate steals your lunch from the fridge.
