Guest Coach Yvette: Food Art
When talking about art, most people think about paintings and statues but there is a new form of art and it is delicious! Food art is very much in trend and there are so many things you can do with food. Let me share some great examples:
These are only a few examples, there are so many more. Think about the possibilities this gives….a child that won’t eat vegetables will definitely be tempted if their vegetables look like their favorite animals or cartoon characters. I mean I would!
To create your own food art you do of course need to have some creativity. But don’t worry if you don’t. First try something simple, like a funny face as a sandwich. Remove the bread crust and cut the slice of bread in a round shape. Now use a strawberry (or strawberries) for the nose, some berries as eyes etc. Your own food art face doesn’t have to be perfect; as long as it is funny it will already help. Do make sure to choose healthy vegetables and fruits to create the face with, this way you can make sure your child will get enough vitamins and minerals. Keep practicing and perhaps later on you can try to make your own Nemo fish! Practice makes perfect.
