I LOVE getting creative with food! In fact, it’s one of my favorite creative outlets! It’s amazing how excited kids get by just making a few creative changes to their meal! Making fun, creative foods can actually be a great way to get picky eaters to try new things. And, getting creative in the kitchen is a fun way to fight the “summer boredom” blues with kids! So, I rounded up a few of my favorite summer fun food ideas that you can make with (or for) the kids. There’s a mix of sweet treats and healthier options with some colors & themes that just seem perfect for summer! Summer Fun Foods for Kids
