Make food fun! Fruits and vegetables do not have to be boring—create visual appeal—this will create interest, intrigue and excitement and more likely for kids to try!

Get creative with healthy ingredients like fruits and vegetables; they’re colorful and can add so much interest.

Use themes to make meals appealing: holidays, celebrations, favorite cartoon, colors, cuisine.

What are some theme nights you can think of or festive foods you make for your family?

What tips do you have for making food fun or festive?

Welcome everyone! Where is everyone joining us from?

Thanks everyone for joining us today!

I like to use popcorn to split the difference--starts out as a whole grain, so yay, but I like to use it to make popcorn balls or homemade cracker jack. Fun to serve at a party, but also fun to give out at the end.

Dennis's monster is just living in 2020.

Jack o' Peppers are family favorite over here!!

Itty bitty 'roni for Ronan!!

I feel very seen by Dennis's wrap. It looks how I feel.

Yes
