Food for the Imagination

We all eat with our eyes first, especially children.  If it looks good, or fun to eat, chances are we will try it!  If you have a problem getting your child to eat anything new try this fun food idea.

Cut up some hot dogs and push your dry spaghetti nearly all the way through the dog.  Boil the pieces as you would noodles and scoop gently from water.  Serve plain, with butter, or with your favorite spaghetti sauce!  Come up with a fun name for the kids to associate with the meal and watch it disappear! Hot dog jigglers?  Jelly fish bites?  Possibilities are endless!
