When it comes to food, presentation plays an important role. While other factors such as smell and taste obviously are significant, food presentation can change opinions on food before ever taking a bite. This is especially true for kids who are more hesitant to try new things. Why not make food a bit more interesting? Whether it is to get kids to eat healthier or to make a simple snack special, here are five simple ways to make food fun for kids. Snack Cup Fun
It doesn’t matter what snack you are serving, it is more fun when served in fun paper baking cups. From nuts to crackers to fruit, colorful cups allow for easy portion control that is anything but boring! Kick it up a notch and add a fun wooden pick that matches the snack or celebration like I did for this tailgating party. Cookies and Milk Upgrade
Serving milk with cookies is pretty standard, but give you can give them an upgrade simply by the way you present them. Try old fashioned dairy milk glasses filled with DairyPure milk from your local dairy and top them off with a cookie resting over the top. It is works great for every day such as family movie night or during special occasions. Party guests will love their cookies with milk! Stick a Straw in It
Any drink looks more appealing with a bright and colorful straw. Whether you opt for plastic or paper, a straw for your glass of milk, lemonade or water is instantly more fun. This is a very inexpensive way to liven up your table! Make it Portable
Any food that is friendly for on-the-go is a nice change of pace. Whether it means skipping utensils or making your morning routine easier, a portable snack means you aren’t limited to eating at the table. Take it outdoors and enjoy your food while appreciating nature! Overnight oats are a great example. Simply add 1/2 cup old fashioned oats and 1/2 cup of DairyPure milk to a mason jar and let it sit overnight to be enjoyed in the morning. You can also add your favorite fruit, nuts, seeds, extract and sweetener such as honey or brown sugar. Have fun mixing up your favorite combinations. Single Serve It
Single serving snacks and desserts are not only great for portion control, they are definitely more fun and still a hot trend. Individual dishes and small spoons can even be picked up inexpensively at your local dollar store.
