One of the best ways to make a picky eater more comfortable around a food is to have them play with it! There’s no pressure to eat it but it gets them to engage with the food in a new way and you never know, they might even try a bite. This "Pea Shapes" recipe is a super simple and engaging way for your children to play with peas!
This recipe was developed by Katie Blauser: mama of three boys, wife of a picky eater, and food lover at Eat Pretty Darling. She believes in making food fun, healthy, & pretty! Katie’s not only outnumbered by boys in her little family, but also by picky eaters. She loves trying to find new ways to get both kids and adults to eat healthy while making food pretty yummy, pretty healthy, and pretty fun! Find Katie on Instagram (@eatprettydarling), where she shares colorful and cute food ideas for both picky and adventurous eaters.
Place the peas on a plate. Lay a cookie cutter down and fill it with a single layer of peas. Carefully remove the cutter and watch the shape be revealed!
