I hope it maybe reassures you to know that we eat more than our fair share of Potato Waffles and cheese toasted sandwiches.
I realised a long time ago that food was a battle I was most unlikely to win.
Anyhow, one sure way to get them to at least attempt something new is to cut it into tiny pieces, put it on a stick, and get someone else to serve it to them. I love how they're a whole lot less suspicious of a stranger giving them snacks than their OWN MOTHER.
We were invited to the Tesco NI food fair in Custom House Square, a couple of Sundays ago, by the lovely people at Graham's Bakery. It is an annual event open to the public, and totally free, which showcases some of the best local food suppliers. The busyness of it had put us off in previous years (it was a bit hectic!), but with bigger children, less likely to get trampled on, we attempted it this year.
Here are some snaps of our day, if you'd like a look...
Making Smoothies with Bike-power!
Slightly random to have an animal attraction at a food fair but, y'know, who are we to argue?
Don't they just look DELIGHTED to be photographed with that Alpaca?? ;)
Life is good when there is cake. Making your own? AWESOME!
We tried lots of new things (my favourite was the Glenisk berry smoothie, Mr M loved the Honey Irish Whiskey!), rolled our own Swiss roll, and left with a bag of goodies.
If you're local I'd definitely recommend a trip next year, but go early and prepare yourself for crowds.
Happy tummies = happy faces though, eh?
