It’s true: putting some effort into making your food look nice and pretty not only makes you appreciate it more but also more appetizing and, if you have kids or if you’re an older sibling and help with your younger siblings’ meals and snacks or work with young children generally, more likely that they will eat it, too.
Not only will they eat it but, as I said, they’ll appreciate their food more and appreciate the effort gone into presenting it.
As part of Diane Eblin’s 30 Days to Easy Gluten Free Living, I’m sharing tips about food presentation and packaging for children, particularly those who are youngsters and pre-teens but it can easily extend to teenagers as well. I’m not a parent (yet) but as the eldest of four siblings, I have helped my parents a lot with my siblings and still do on a regular, daily basis as part of being a family.
With children, it’s important that their food is made to look appealing because, like everyone else, they feast with their eyes first.
