I’ve had quite a few requests for ideas to help fussy eaters accept meat.
Meat can be a challenge for littlies or picky eaters who are not used to chewing.
Firstly, go SMALL. These are ‘the world’s tiniest meatballs’. Check out the toothpicks next to them for reference!
Something that is tiny:
– Is far less intimidating
– Takes less chewing
– We don’t get bored with halfway through
Having fun in the kitchen with our child creating the ‘world’s smallest’ can be useful.
If meatballs on their own are too much of a challenge, consider adding sauce, cheese, or another favourite – even if it does drown it out!
