The prize was a COOKIE!
I figure that this worked so well because it broke up the long process of eating into small bites with little rewards along the way. She even ate her salad.
OTHER VARIATIONS : You could say each piece is worth two bites. You could make your own puzzle up with a picture of the dessert you were having that night so it is almost like a guessing game. This Puzzle game could be used for good behavior at the table, practicing table manors. You could extend this idea with older kids by having them earn puzzle pieces for good behavior throughout the day and completing the puzzle for a prize at the end of the day
