Chrissy Teigen's actual dinner menu for her fussy toddler is just too much
We love kids, we really do, but as much as we love them, they can really be a pain in the neck sometimes, can't they? Around about the time that they start to walk and talk, they slowly start to talk back, and slowly but surely, they start to form their own opinions, and make their first steps toward identity.
It sounds lovely and poetic, but in practice, it can be a little annoying. Your little one starts off by adorably saying "mama" or "dada", but before long, their favourite word is "no", and you start to hear it all the time. Toddlers are inherently fussy, and that goes especially for celebrity toddlers.
Just ask Chrissy Teigen.
Of course, she's just given birth to her second child with John Legend, but while Miles isn't too picky about what he eats, two-year-old Luna is a completely different story. But while some parents would get frustrated, give up and make their offspring pancakes for dinner, Chrissy Teigen has a pretty genius plan.
"I made a restaurant for my 2 and a half year old," captioned Chrissy Teigen in her Twitter video, as she showed off an honest-to-God menu for her little two-year-old, giving Luna a selection of choices ahead of mealtimes for the foreseeable future.
The video, which has another caption on the actual video saying "trying to get Luna to eat by being psychotic," Teigen flips through the menu to show us what Luna's got to eat, and there are kid-approved menu options for any fussy toddler to pick from.
So, what's on the menu for Chrissy Teigen's Luna restaurant? Well, we've got Ham and Cheese "Lunables", we've got Cereal with Bananas, the old favourite Grilled Cheese, a Cheese Quesadilla, Crispy Fish Sticks, Chicken Tenders, and last - but not least - Chicken Spaghetti.
How cool is that? Other parents seemed to love it, as they've probably had similar issues with their toddlers at mealtimes, because young kids are super fussy all over the world. "This is absolutely genius! My 2 y/o is speech delayed so this would make meal time so much easier!" said one, while another tapped into the mind of the toddler, and why Teigen nailed it with her menu.
"This is awesome! I'll be starting one for my 2 year old today. He (naturally) loves to be in charge of his meals and this will make things so much easier. Thanks for sharing!"
But as one parent pointed out, Chrissy Teigen might have a little more variety than the parent in an average house: "At my house lately, the menu would be 'PBJ. Lucky Charms. End of list.'" But still, what an awesome idea, right? Chrissy Teigen may have come out with yet another cookbook this year, but for the very latest Teigen recipes, you're going to have to go to two-year-old Luna.
