If you have kids you know one thing – they can be picky. For absolutely no reason at all, my boys have refused certain foods at different time in their lives. It’s frustrating to say the least. One way that I have encouraged them to try new foods – or, to at least EAT, is by making food fun. Witch Fingers, Wafflesaurus, Peanut Butter Apple Cinnamon Sushi Rolls – all these easy recipes are designed with one goal in mind – to get my boys to eat!

Jill Mills, creator of the wildly famous blog, Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons, has created an amazing book filled with 40 animal-inspired meals and snacks for kids: Wild Eats and Adorable Treats. Brilliant!

Inside you’ll find all sorts of creative recipes that no kid can resist! I let me boys look through her book and they landed on these adorable Penguin Fruit Snacks – made with grapes! I used her basic recipe with my own touches for this fun finished product.

Can you say adorable? Jill used mandarins for her nose and feet but I had some carrots that were just begging to be used. I cut a little slit in the top grape and inserted a triangle-shaped piece of carrot right in the slit.

Make sure you keep your grapes dry when piping on the cream cheese!

    My two daughters (9 and 7 years old) helped me core,peel and slice apples with an apple/peeler/corer. They also helped me make a bunch of applesauce with my food mill.

    One of my favorite memories with my daughter is seeing her at 6 months old sitting with her little apron on and playing in a bowl of flour with measuring cups. Then my other memory I love is the 4 year old I babysit and I give him a plastic knife to cut fruit and he will tell me that he makes the best fruit salad in the world.

  14. Some of my favorite kitchen memories are making Christmas cookies with the kids every year.

  15. They are adorable Trish!! I love my memories of baking with Jordan…when she’s in the mood. :)
