Ashton & Riley’s Clowns

Ashton and Riley put together some awesome clowns for their dinner. They followed the photos from the website and managed to do these with only a little help. They were so proud of their designs and named them Ashton (after a circus clown they had recently seen) and Ra Ra.

They loved curling the carrots and couldn’t wait to gobble down the tomatoes. The rest of the veggies were enjoyed with a tub of dip.

My boys often beg to do their own designs using fruit or veggies. It’s a great way to get them involved in the cooking process and eating your own creation is always way more fun!!

Send in your pics to judith@theartofnutrition.com and join in the fun on the Kids Specials page.

Happy Birthday Catrina

 

My good friend Teresa from Melbourne was organising a sleep-over party for her lovely daughter Catrina who is turning 12 today! She decided to do home-made pizzas which the girls could make themselves followed by fruit creations inspired by my website. I am very honoured to feel a little long-distance inclusion in the festivities.

The girls were given a selection of fresh fruit and some classy, white plates to display their designs and then let loose. So much better than cake and twice as much fun I reckon, and by the look of the photos everyone else seems to agree!

I am so delighted to see a party focusing on fresh food. Could this be the way of the future? 🙂

Max & Joe ‘do’ Clown Faces

Last night the boys saw the clown face I’d made as part of dinner and they were so inspired and wanted to do their own versions. I was tired, it was late and I said no …. but, after some high level negotiations we compromised on them doing their own but with no help from me at all. I got the veggies out (fortunately I had cooked enough potato) and set them up with a plate, a chopping board and a knife they can wield safely.

They sat in front of the Ipad and scrolled through the instructions on the blog (generously sharing some of the food with the screen) and were able to come up with their own plate each. Max had to help Joe with some of the chopping and they fought over the olives but aside from that it was smooth sailing. They were also so excited to eat their own work.

Which, does go to prove that the design may look complicated but it is actually very simple!!
