Dining Under the Sea

Pin It

My girls love the Little Mermaid and all things fishy (except for eating actual fish, that would be too easy).  But they did love this fish I made out of sliced cheese.  I added some blueberries for the bubbles, made a starfish by using a cookie cutter and adding cinnamon, and chopped up some chicken for the sand/shells.  For the fish, I used a straw to make the scales and added some shredded mozzarella for the stripe. Then just cut out a little mouth and add an eye.  I used some cookie sprinkles for the eye but you can use anything or even just use a straw to punch out an eye.  If you don't mind punching a fish.  


B cleaned her plate.  A, my less adventurous eater, ate everything except the chicken.  That's a win in my book!  Any ideas for other sea items I can add?

  2. That is adorable. I may have to do this creative cooking for my challenge eater. Baby Diva has yet to eat chicken like that.

  3. WOW! That's pretty amazing! I'm not at that stage yet with my bambina, but we'll see when she gets older how much energy I have to put into food art like this, lol :-D

  5. I wish I had an adventurous eater...like me! I love to try new things and make new foods, but Lulu could care less. Bubba - at 8 months - would rather eat all of her food than his own. Ugh!
