I'm a big fan of Instagram, and I follow this cool vegan mom and macaron magician, Floral Frosting. She posts her children's lunches from time to time, and they often include fruit or veggies cut into cute crinkle cut fries. I decided I had to have one, and found this inexpensive, but well-reviewed one on Amazon. While I waited for my order, I noticed this meme all over my feed from several sources, so I'm not sure who to credit as the original maker, but it's hilarious and true!
I think my 4 year old is technically a "preschooler" rather than toddler now, but he is guilty of eating just a line around the middle of an apple and leaving so much behind (for me to eat, obviously, or the worms in the compost). But today my crinkle cutter came and it made apple fries cut crinkle cut! My son ate two apples in a row and exclaimed we should cut everything with my new cutter! I tried a carrot too, which after two apples he just nibbled at, but I enjoyed.
What a fun way to get more fruits and veggies into your kids, and to make you dishes more fun.
If you have one, or order one through this affiliate link, let me know how you use it.
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
