~Book Giveaway ~
Fun Food For Fussy Little Eaters 

The festive season is right around the corner ....the westerns markets 
are stocked up with the Halloween paraphernalia while the Indian markets 
are beautifully lit up with the luminaries of the 'festival of lights'- Diwali. 
While the houses are getting decorated , party menus are being finalized and 
the gift lists are being checked and rechecked , what could be a
 better way to spread the same festive warmth on the blog with
a  Giveaway .

entrepreneur studies , blogging took a back seat owing to which I was
 unable to share with you a few pages from the book . 




The Book 'Fun Food For Fussy Little Eaters' revolves around the
 central theme of the blog- simplicity at its best . The fun food ideas
 in this book aim to make  food more visually appealing and entice 
children to be more adventurous. Featuring easy to make breakfasts
 and  snacks comprised of healthy ingredients such as fresh fruits,
 vegetable, cheese and whole meal bread, the fun food presentations
 drive home the message that healthy meals don't have to be boring. 



This fun and  quirky book , complete with step by step pictures is divided into 
theme chapters ranging from - Fun at the zoo , Fairy Tales, Happy Holidays , 
and much more. There are a lot of quick and easy to make party ideas for 
the reluctant little gourmets too . Pinocchio, Santa Sandwich, 
Party peacock , Slithery Sanke, Flower garden and many more super easy 
to make fun ideas from the book will surely add a new dimension to 
mealtimes. The book is available

  3. Hopped here from ArtsyCraftsy's blog...WOW! your blog is a visual treat...can I say I am envious of your daughter..she is SOOOO Lucky...

    To be honest, I havent really created any fun food, except when I make dosas for my brat. I make them as dogs, and cats and flowers and cars and horses and tea pots :):)

    I am not on facebook, but leaving a comment here just to let you know that you have a fan now :) W.O.W...seriously wow at your creativity!

  4. Making food appear fun is a great way to interest kids in not just eating what's on their plate, but also in what goes on in the kitchen. As they grow older, they'll want to make their own creations and develop their own imagination :-).

    Food for little ones can be a tedious job. Cooking seperately with less spices , less oil and still make it "fun" is where the real challenge is. I almost panick when I have to organise a bday party or a try and feed him something that is healthy and well not "potatoes" and "Choco pie". So for me this is a great idea and I wish to learn these amazing techniques of making fun food for my little ones and ensure that he gets a proper nutritous and a balance diet. Now thenext question, when ?? Well atleast the weekends if I can as i will have more time at my disposal. And if possible something easy and quick fix kind of solution when we are travelling with the kid.

  18. I started making funny foods for my daughter when she was 3 years old. She would not eat unless I did something creative with it. Of course, my creativity was nowhere near yours. But she loved it, which was great for my ego. But with a full time job and a 4-hour long commute, I can't really make time for creativity. A book like this would give me great ideas. My son is now 2 1/2 and has started demanding interesting looking food. Cynthology

  19. Very creative food art here, Smita! Love it! I started experimenting with displaying food in a fun and an interesting manner to make meal times, happy times for my son! With interesting food display, he would eat anything quickly :)

    1. This looks so unique and different. I would love to go through the book, review it on my blog, my first love.
      Though I am not a great cook but I love decorating things and art and craft attracts me a lot. Playing with food designs is something I look forward to to involve good eating habits among children.. The look absolutely matters!!!

      Must say again Great work!!

  30. Congratulations on the book. I think it sounds like awesome fun.

    I'm not a very enthusiastic daily cook, but I do love having fun once in a while. I don't make an effort on a daily basis because I honestly believe kids should learn the importance of healthy food going into their bodies instead of having to be coerced into eating it.

    What I love though, is going all out on an occasion such as a festival or a birthday. I don't know if you allow links within comments, but here are two occasions on which I had fun with the kids' birthday party menus.

  38. I have been a fan of yours even before I started blogging. Although my daughter is not a fussy eater, there are times when she needs to be cajoled into eating something. I guess your book would be perfect when she needs to be tricked into eating something :)

  39. This book really will compel all the kids to have a fantasy on the food.....and they definately would be eager to open their lunch boxes everyday

  55. I cannot describe how delighted I was when I saw the cover of your book for the first time. With the perusal of each page my smile grew wider and wider and I began to experience pure joy on a visceral level. What a unique and wonderful idea.
    It reminded me of one of my own projects when I was taking a Holistic Nutrition course. I had to present information about the food sources of magnesium and the way I chose to do it was to make a little person out of the food sources. Her name was Magi and she had a banana body, asparagus arms, an apple head with a collard cap, multigrain cheerio eyes etc etc..It was a huge hit and I got top marks.
    A picture is worth a thousand words, which is so true ,and if we look at something that makes us feel good, then it is natural to want to bring that into our lives, and into our bodies in the case of food.
    There is no question that the consumption of fruits and vegetables is a major contributor to excellent health, and the food items in your book feature these items dominantly.
    I am truly inspired to share and provide these treasures to all the people who I hold near and dear. I do not have children however I do have some aquaintances who are Seniors and they can be "particular' as well as kids. I look forward to seeing a smile light up their faces.
    A big thank you to you, Smita.
