Seriously, Who has the Time?

Like come on who has time to do this. . .

It can definatley be a battle at times to get your children to eat and believe me I know, it's beyond me sometimes how one of little monkeys survives on such little food.  But I draw the line at making faces and characters out of the food.  The fact I've cooked a good tasty meal, mashed it, chopped, separated it out should be enough.

The creations are amazing and its not that I'm not creative with my hand, I cant draw for peanuts but crafts I'm pretty ok at, it's just the time is would take to do one of the above.  I honestly don't think it would help my children eat any more than do.  
In our house meal times is all about encouragement if you eat something you get a big clap.
I dont know maybe my children are missing out but I think not. . .
