Fun Food!

We all know it can be challenging to get kids to try new foods, fruits and vegetables...Sometimes display can help!

Check out these fun food displays:

Had I been given a plate like this when I was younger, I would have tried anything!!

Painting with Fruits & Veggies!

Painting is a great way for kids to use their imaginations.

For a new spin on painting, allow your kids to raid the fruit and veggie bins in your fridge. Fruits and veggies can become your painting instruments!  No more paint brushes!

We suggest using potatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, and celery.  These items will create different textures and unique works of art.  Let your kids go wild!
