The best way to make my son to eat his lunch without any fuss is to make simple salad with youghurt/curd base. He loves that crunchy, sweet, tangy salads and has it as is. As a mother what else do you need if you son eats his food without fuss. I love the way my lil one tries to eat with his spoon and fork without spilling anything on himself and outside.
I had got this home grown cherry red tomatoes from my neighbour. Here is a simple salad recipe for that laid back lunches
