Baby note 1

You can trick/persuade/coerce a baby who only eats when distracted (but is very good at picking up food from the table) into eating better using a simple technique. Rather than giving a whole rice cake break the rice cake up into bits and in the time it takes her to retrieve all the bits and pop them in her mouth you'll have snuck almost half of her dinner into her mouth without so much as a blink. Rinse repeat, dinner done.
