The point of food art is NOT to be able to recreate a whole Frozen scene, it’s to get a fussy eater involved and interested.
My advice is always to focus on the interaction rather than the eating. A child being able to get up close and personal with a food is always a win.
I was making myself a salad for lunch and suddenly the cucumber was ‘speaking’ to me.
Nothing fancy, just some cool little monster heads.
If we can get a child to help create that’s a huge bonus. And of course, no need for it to be perfect. Just like children’s drawings, what they create may be indescipherable to us but amazing to them 😊
