Spoonfeeding by stealth

These are a few of my strategies for spooning food into The Little Madam's mouth. If you have a similar problem with your little darling, perhaps you will find inspiration here...

1. Get her father to stand in front of her and pull funny faces. While she is distracted, quickly put the spoonful of food into her mouth.

2. Hide each spoonful of food with something she really loves, like pear and banana puree from a jar.

3. Just as she's about to take a drink or a bite of oven chip, quickly spoon some food into her mouth. You have to be fast though, because her mouth will be too small for both a spoon and a chip.

4. This works if she's got a cold and has to breathe through her mouth - she'll have her mouth closed whenever the spoon is hovering near, but she has to open it to take a breath some time right?

But if you have some cunning plans which you don't see on this list, feel free to leave a comment...
