Constructive Eating Makes Happy Parents!
Have you ever tried to get a toddler to eat healthy foods that they have some unwarranted aversion to? Have you ever done a broccoli interpretive dance, or a cauliflower cha-cha to get your child to eat the healthy vegetables? My daughter is pretty good about eating veggies, but every once in a while she refuses to eat something she liked a week ago. Another parent had this same issue, and created Constructive Eating! Constructive Eating is a set of eating utensils where they become fun machines; the fork lift fork, front loader spoon, and bulldozer pusher. The product contains NO Lead, NO Bisplenol A (BPA), NO PVC, and NO Phthalates. They come in pink or yellow. Kids love to use their "machines" to make eating time fun.
I watched my child use her fork lift fork and bulldozer pusher to get her squash mash from plate to mouth (and without any complaints). She now wants food she has to use a fork with! Most children get into vehicles and large machines by age 2, so this set is the perfect way to incorporate healthy eating and fun. I notice my child gets so enchanted with the process of getting the food on her utensils that she forgets what she is eating (so I can sneak in the items she swears she does not like). Everyone can have fun at meal time! My husband secretly wishes he had a set too! ;)
