We all know that nutrition has a clear relationship to brain function.  Fruits and vegetables are filled with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all which help create healthy children.  Sometimes it is a challenge to get children to eat enough of these healthy foods, but finding fun ways to entice children to munch on them can be a rewarding process.  

A recent post in our local newspaper shared instructions called "Play with Your Food: Peanut-butterfly".  Can you see what they did?  Carrot sticks make the body of the butterfly.  Apple wedges are sandwiched together with peanut butter in between, and then sliced in half so they can be formed and shaped make the wings.  

Displayed on a pretty plate, it makes a pretty little lunch treat for your favorite kids!  What other creative ideas have you tried to make healthy foods attractive to kids?
