What exactly attracts a kid to food? This is a common question among parents and caregivers, especially when it comes to trying to ensure a child is eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. The answer? Cute shapes, colorful components, and an interesting plate.

This sandwich lunch is a prime example of how one can go about getting kids excited about food. This turkey sandwich, apples, cheese, and craisin meal is certainly healthy and filled with foods that most kids enjoy; however, if you just put it all on a plate, most kids will take it or leave it (especially if they have something better to do). But cut the sandwich into a circle, arrange the apples as feathers, and add the side dishes to mini muffin cups, and you’ll grab their attention and their appetites. Enjoy!
