Bobbie Rhoads

Bobbie is a mom of two daughters and the inventor of FunBites.

How did you come up with the idea for your product? My husband and I have two girls, ages 12 and 8.  A few years ago we all came up with the idea of FunBites.

Our older daughter has always been a great eater.  She would eat pretty much whatever you gave her so long as the food was neat and organized. Our younger daughter was a different story.  She was truly a picky nicky. She liked the same food all the time, and she didn’t like to try new things, unless it was junk food.

At meals we would spend so much time cutting food into small shapes.  Wouldn’t it be easier if there was something we could just press down and food would be in the bite size?  Maybe our kids would try new foods and eat healthier.  Maybe mealtime would be less stressful and more fun.  That’s how it all started.  Welcome to FunBites!

What’s your favorite parenting tip? Enjoy the little things in life because someday you will realize they were the big things.

How do you get your family to eat healthy food and/or exercise? To eat healthy, we use FunBites of course… making food really fun! To exercise, we bike ride, play basketball, tennis, rake leaves… whatever gets us outside, together.

How do you recharge your batteries? We really like watching movies together and playing board games. I like to read the paper in the bubble bath with a TV show or movie in the background.  Yes, it’s multitasking relaxation, but it’s so comforting.
