As a kid, did anyone ever tell you to stop playing with your food? “Playing with your food” by creating food art is a great way to introduce healthy foods in a fun and interactive way. What is food art? Think fruit and vegetable turkeys for Thanksgiving, fruit trays in the shape of a rainbow or balloons made out of grapes. It’s fun, creative and delicious!
Teach nutrition education using My Plate recommendations whenever doing food art.
Use cookie cutters to cut fruits and vegetables to make your designs.
If your school only allows students to consume pre-packaged or whole fruits and vegetables, use food art for demonstrations only (not consumption).
Cut fruits and vegetables ahead of time.
