Chrissy Teigen Has a Hilarious Solution for Her Daughter’s Picky Eating

All you have to do is make a restaurant.

Chrissy Teigen knows the struggle of dealing with a picky eater—but she’s come up with the perfect way to get daughter Luna to eat. On Tuesday, the Cravings cookbook author tweeted a video of the personal menu she put together for the toddler featuring kid-friendly recipes.

“I made a restaurant for my 2-and-a-half-year-old,” Teigen said. “A binder of laminated photos with TODDLER FOOD on Peppa Pig plates, A MENU FOR MY DAUGHTER. I actually didn’t realize how insane this was til I started typing it.”

The menu of beautifully photographed food includes picky-eater-approved dishes like cereal with bananas, crispy fish sticks, cheese quesadilla and chicken tenders.

And the recipe that Teigen says she’s most proud of? Ham and cheese “Lunables,” a riff on the popular Lunchables made with slices of meat and cheese between crackers.

  1. How comfortable and prepared do you feeling speaking to your children about race and systemic racism?
    That's not a conversation I plan to have.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that everyone is equal.
    I feel unprepared and uncomfortable, but plan to have the conversation.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that inequality is a core American experience.
Thanks for the feedback!

There are even prices listed next to each item (the grilled cheese costs $3, for example), which 33-year-old Teigen says is because “if [Luna] pays she will eat it.” She added that the “restaurant” will only be accepting fake money, of course.

The post came the day after the mom of two complained about her daughter’s very particular palate. “I always came from the mindset of ‘eat what we serve or go to bed hungry,'” Teigen wrote. “But I’m officially owned by my toddler, struggling to make a *dinner* luna likes aside from spaghetti and fish sticks…. any ideas welcome!!”

According to research, Teigen isn’t the only parent dealing with a picky eaterone study revealed that up to 22 percent of kids between the ages of 2 and 11 years old are reported to be picky eaters.

And while the Lip Sync Battle host likely won’t be publishing Luna’s menu, she announced back in October that she is working on a cookbook for children.
