Superhero Dad Creatively Tricks Daughter Into Eating Lunch

Posted by Nicole Fabian-Weber on September 11, 2012 at 9:57 AM

lunch noteGetting kids to eat their lunches isn't always a walk in the park. Sometimes it requires a certain creativity -- hiding vegetables inside other foodstuffs that may be able to pass for something "unhealthy"; arranging fruits and nuts and raisins into a smiley face or a bunny or a unicorn; and of course -- the lunch note

Since the dawn of time, parents have been sending their kids off to school with sweet little notes in their lunch sacks. Partly to remind them how much they're loved; partly to entice them to eat what they packed for them. However, nobody -- seriously nobody -- is yet to pack a note as fantastically creative as the ones one father did for his 7-year-old daughter

Apparently, his daughter never ate her lunch at school -- ever. But then they watched The Avengers together and she loved it, so dad got an idea. He created some comic-esque drawings with what he refers to as his "pitiful art skills", along with a message, reminding his daughter to eat her lunch. The result? She's eaten her food every single day. Nice going, Dad!

No creative ideas here, I have only talked to him about how he wont be strong like dad and then when he plays and stuff and he gets tired I tell him, see thats why daddy can still play and you cant cuz he ate all his food and you dont. So now when he plays he has to keep his Fuel (water) with him to help keep him going untill the next meal. lol. If he eats candy he excercises afterwords becuz he says he doesnt want to be unhealthy and fat. He also has a chart he got from school last year that has the food piramid thing on it. 

I think I just got lucky with him wanting to be strong and healthy.
