Food + Art = Fun

I know.  Our mums have always instilled in us that food is meant for eating, not for playing. But who says you can’t have a little bit of fun with it before you sit down to eat?

Food can be a channel for our creativity — and we just might get the kiddos excited about eating spinach! Here are some playful ways of preparing and presenting food I just might try one of these days… (Click on the photos for the how-to’s.)

Well, what about you? How creative do you get with food?
