My sweet one-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter can spend hours playing with geometrically-shaped blocks. Not only does she recognize the shapes and is able to tell them apart, she also loves associating them with colors. One day, after a long struggle to get her to take more than three or four bites of her food, I came up with the idea of presenting every possible food to her in different shapes. With the help of games and riddles, she ended up with an empty plate and, at times, stammered the word every grandmother hopes for: “More, more.” I suggest you do the same here, by offering a fun option for your children’s lunch boxes, especially if they’re very young (Place lunch with Ice packs in an insulated lunch box).
