3 Super Simple Tricks for Making Fruit Fun!

Hello and happy happy! Today I am going to show you how a bit of simple food presentation can transform a meal or snack for your little one. And it isn’t rocket science and it doesn’t have to take long. I promise!

Below are some before and after snaps of prepping an easy fruit salad. If you struggle to get your little one to try new things, why not try something a bit different. This type of food prep can be done using fruit, veg, savoury and sweet food. Anything you like really! Check out some other fun fruit inspiration here: Watermelon Windmills, Kiwi Cars and Fruity Fish and Chips.Healthy food made fun for toddlers and children ideas for snacks weaning lunch meals

So below I use strawberries, grapes and blueberries. Here are three simple tricks you can use to present fruit and veg in appealing ways for toddlers:

1 –Kebab them. So using colourful, fun food picks, create mini fruit kebabs. B loves these.

2 – Flowers. It isn’t difficult to arrange anything into a flower really. As you can see below, this flower isn’t perfect. But it has maximum impact when presented to a toddler!

3 – Snakes. Again, any fruit or veg can be arranged to make a “snake”. I used an edible black food pen to draw the eyes on the grape snake. You can get them online for a couple of quid. And you can make fun snakes out of veggies too ;0)

These literally took minutes to make 🙂 Have fun!

Remember to PIN it and save it for later 🙂

  1. Love it…except it\’s almost too pretty to eat! LOL! Notice that I said \”almost\” because I can devour some fruit and veggies (even when I feel guilty for destroying the gorgeous display). Funny thing, well displayed fruit causes me to eat more because I try to balance (or cover) what I\’ve eaten. LOL! #bigpinklink

  2. Fabulous ideas as usual!! We tried fruit kebabs with ours when we were having a bbq, and we said that they were having grown up food, like ours-they went down a storm! I will have to give flowers and snakes a go! Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink!

  4. i love making creative things with food for my two sometimes, it can really help them to eat what is in front of them. Love your snakes and the flower x

  5. What lovely ideas! I love food art and whenever I have time I try to come up with interesting ideas to try out on my little ones (aged 2 and 4). I love that these are so simple but really effective.

  6. Loving the snake! Edible pens, never heard of, this is something that needs to be in my cupboard for the future! #bigpinklink

  7. My two have always been fruit bats so there\’s been no need to make fruit fun as they always love it, however it\’s presented! We do love a fruit kebab though! #bestandworst

  8. What a lovely way to serve fruit. I wish I was more creative with displaying food! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x
