Tricks are for Kids...
I guess I should have made it clearer that this was not about meeting my husbands wishes (and my gold standard) but that it was about being frustrated by how feeding children is portrayed. I honestly thought that the ideas were cute on the link to cute kids food, but who on this planet has time to make each of their child's meal a game AND is it even honest to do so. Food will not always be sandwiches made to look like a day at the beach... When I was growing up that sort of food spectacle was saved for birthday cakes.
This sites menus link has a much more realistic and practical suggestion of what are regular, good everyday food items to offer a child.
