When my children won't eat i put there food in box, with a toy, and then they eat it. It truly works

FF it works with mine too...but only if the food in the box is from McDonalds

Do you think shepherd's pie is too messy for this?

dinosaur Wed 11-Feb-04 17:22:35

the lumps should stay in, even if the gravy dribbles out...

or is it only me who makes lumpy mince and lumpy mashed potatoes

I use a plastic bag for Shepherds pie

dinosaur Wed 11-Feb-04 17:25:38

What about soup? What do you use for that?

FF - you're outrageous!

where can I get one of these boxes from?

Festivefly Thu 12-Feb-04 21:58:57

They sell them in stationary shops, or the cash and carry for catering, noodle boxes

Is it a toy rabbit you put in your box?

So, if I get one of these boxes of which you speak so highly, will it make me as happy as it does you if I put a toy in it?
