70850684 - pasta spaghetti with funny meatballs for kids

Hello mums, hope you all and little kiddies are doing well. Like me, do you want to know recipes of easy meals for kids along with easiest, simplest and creative ideas of decoration and food designing.

When we talk about designing, the first thing that came in our mind is that we need to be an artist or expert chef of some experienced person to design food. Well, that is absolutely wrong. Being a busy mum, we can create and design food for our kids or we can also provide them ingredients so that they can design the food themselves and by doing so, you encourage your little one to eat healthy food.

During the preparation time, talk to them about nutritional benefits in an easy and childish way. This is one of the best activity to explore our kid’s creativity and also good for them to learn about food.

In this article, I am going to share some easiest yet yummiest and creative food decoration ideas, that you can enjoy making along with your kids. These ideas are so so simple and not time consuming at all, so, busy mums can also do it…So, let’s see pasta sauce recipe and chicken patty recipe before looking at out creative ideas…
