Fun and creative food ideas for kids

accreditation
Preparing a delicious and healthy meal for your child is no guarantee that your little one will eat a single bite of food once it's placed in front of them. In fact, the more effort, the less likely it is for a child to want to partake of the food you've worked so hard to make. It's some sort of crazy science! (It's not but it might as well be.)

We want to help so we've collected some fun and creative kid food ideas that may just trick your kids. Toast shaped like an owl may just be the thing to inspire your child to eat something other than instant noodles.

Warning: The chances of your child flinging these adorable dishes across the room are still quite high. You've been warned.
