Adding “eyes” to food literally transforms it for little B. Beware though, once you start adding them, your child may well want (demand)Ā them all the time. Which can of course be a bit tiresome if you really cant be bothered, or are out and about.

There are a number of ways I add eyes to food and here I share some of those ways with you:

Icing Pens

These are quick and easy to use, especially for small eyes but it can be tricky to get nice round eyes. Once the icing warms up a bit, it can run :/ You can get these in most supermarkets.

Raisins

Raisins are great for adding eyes to fruit, sandwiches, breakfasts – anything really. I find if you roll the raisin in the palm of your hand for a few seconds, it makes it a little rounder and easier to work with.

Blueberries

Cut them in half and they work really well.

Olives

These are handy for savoury eyes. I am not a big olive fan though so we typically never have these in the house.

Chocolate buttons/drops

Handy for eyes on puddings.

Straws

You can use straws to punch small “eyes” out of anything really – ham, cheese, slice of strawberry – whatever you’re making!how to make eyes fun food bento style lunchboxes kids toddler party review template example tutorial

Fake eyes

You can always buy little eyes to add to food. I got the ones below on eBay – search for bento eyes.
