Try This Sticker Hack Next Time You’re At The Shops

She shared that she now takes Disney-themed stickers to the shops and them surreptitiously sticks them onto the fruit and vegetables to make them look more appealing to her kids.

Jane explains in her post:

“Here’s my best parenting hack”, she says.

“You know how kids always want Paw Patrol yogurt or Disney waffles or whatever? Bring your own stickers to the grocery store and start sticking.”

“Today we’re having Winnie the Pooh brand spaghetti squash. It goes perfectly with Toy Story broccoli.”

She accompanied the post with a picture of a yellow squash with a Winnie the Pooh bear sticker on it.

  • love it. Great way to help kids decide to eat veges.


  • My kids are pretty good about fruit and veggies, but this is still really clever.


  • Very clever idea if you are getting your children used to helping in the kitchen for making a meal. Thanks so much for sharing this idea.


  • I don’t serve them veggies they don’t like I hide them in spag bol and patties and only those they enjoy as a veggie


  • They would undoubtedly have fun running round spotting the produce with the fun stickers. But it wouldn’t make them eat it once it was cooked up and put on a plate


  • Oh my gosh that is hilarious and genius! Will be stealing this idea


  • Haha, I love this. What an absolutely genius idea.


  • This just wouldn’t have worked with my kids. They are stubborn (just like me!) and if they don’t like something, even the look of it, they won’t eat it no matter what.


  • Thankfully fruit and vegetables are loved in this house!


  • That’s a pretty cool way of doing it


  • My kids eat their veges so I don’t need to worry. It’s a very ingenious idea though and I’m sure many Mums will love the idea.


  • Thankfully my kids are pretty good with eating fruit and veggies. Occasionally my son is a bit fussy and I find grating veggies and putting them into a pasta bake or casserole helps because they can’t really see them


  • Such a cute idea. I love it.????


  • Clever idea. Don’t think my son will fall for this though


  • An excellent idea
