    Default Does creative food presentation work for your kids?

    Do your kids try new foods/eat more if you present it creatively?

    For example, if you do things like fashioning food into a smiley face on the plate, cut sandwiches into cute shapes, build a mashed potato mountain with broccoli trees etc.?

    Never tried it, but my kids aren't that fussy.

    They take after me and LOVE food

    Fortunately my kids aren't fussy, but they do love it when I mix it up a bit and make them little Bento style lunches etc, all the colours and compartments, they just love. I have little moulds to make boiled eggs into heart shapes, stars and cars and little cutters to make different shaped food etc.

    It's all a bit of fun for a change that I do every now and then and to surprise them, but doesn't have any baring on their eating, as they eat regardless of whether I do their food differently or creatively.
