Here's an easy way to make meals fun – try making all the foods in a meal the same shape. The meal pictured here is one of Lila's circle lunches (we have many) of a whole-grain mini-bagel, apple slices with peanut butter, and cucumbers.
Circles include: slices of cored apple or pear, horizontal slices of peeled orange, whole-grain bagels, whole-grain English muffins, mini-cheese, and sliced round veggies like carrots.
For square or triangle meals I often cut a sandwich into the shape I want, then cut or arrange fruit and veggies to make the same shape.
Today's tip: Matching shapes may make standard breakfast, lunch, or dinner meals surprising.
