I liked this fellow's sense of trying to keep his child interested in a restricted diet.

Of course, I'm a magazine person, so presentation is everything :lol:

Anybody have cool presentation tricks to share?

Im horrible but Ive never got into the 'presentation' side of food to keep the boys interested-never did the cutting things into special shapes, making smiley face vege things...we just have a rule 'of it doesnt make your lips swell then it has to be eaten' -they eat it and they get desert-simple! They dont ,then they still have to eat it and they miss out on dessert. Im a mean old mother arent I!

This was sent to me yesterday by a fellow Guide leader:

I love making fun food, but don't have the time or energy to do it as often as I'd like.

Cutting it into cubes, sticks circles etc helps as does dipping sauces.
Using different plates (fondue plates!) or putting the veggies in little schnapps glasses makes it fun too.
:D

We've also made ladybirds by taking half of a red bell pepper and using honey to adhere raisins to it. Stringing fruits, vegetables, or anything else on kebab skewers is another simple trick.
