Fun Food for Kids-Creative Food-Fun Food for Fussy Eaters (Indian)

Make meal time fun and interesting for kids. It  is really very difficult to make some kids eat healthy food. Here are a few creative ideas on how to present food or make food appealing for kids. The way you present the food makes all the difference. It is not going to take much time. Kids love bright colored food, fun shapes, funny faces, figures etc. Make smiley faces or funny faces with idly or make cartoon designs with rice. Surprise your kids by making snow man with curd rice, chick with lemon rice, funny face with coriander rice, top yogurt with nuts and fruits to make a funny face etc.These are all just a few examples. It is all left to your imagination. I am sure your kids will love all this and it may help your child to eat healthier foods. I personally believe that parents play an important role in laying the foundation for healthy eating habits in our kids.You can involve your kids also in making these fun food as they love to eat what they created.
