You may have seen my recent post about using food toys to help inspire healthy eating in little ones. Well, I’ve done a little informal research since then and I’m thinking the tactic might work 😉
Last week, I went to the grand opening of the new Land of Nod store in South Coast Plaza (for those of you who don’t live in Southern California, don’t worry: they have lots of online inspiration too).
In addition to adorable bedding, furniture and storage solutions, the store had a sprinkling of food-related toys – all of which had a healthy undertone.
I settled on the salad set (actually I bought three so I’d have a couple on-hand for gifts!) and brought it home to see what Lucy would create.
She instantly loved it.
And when I made her a little salad at dinner the following night, she said to me: “Lucy made it!” then began to gobble it down.
Here’s to hoping this trend lasts!!
