You all wonderful mummies very well know how much important vegetables are for growing kids. But getting them towards eating all those raw vegetables is really very difficult task. Isn’t it?

Therefore, I came up with an idea of sharing some simple salad ideas with you to attract your little kids towards eating healthy vegetables. These salad ideas are very simple, creative yet appealing and you don’t need extra time and energy to prepare them.

Even your little ones can make these salads in their own creative way just give them vegetables like cucumber, tomato, carrot, olives, beans, peas, lettuce, onion, and all those vegetables that your kids can love, and just assist them how to prepare, that’s it.

You can also do the same with fruits as i explained in my article Easiest & Healthiest Fruit Salads – Simple Salads Recipes

So, let’s see what amazing shapes you can prepare with the following vegetables.

So, beautiful mummiesi hope you would like these ideas as all are very simple and interesting, give them a try along with your kiddies. I am sure they will love to explore their imaginations and will create something very interesting shape.

If you have already used this idea so share your experience along with the pictures, i will be glad to see your creativity and your little ones innovation. Share with us in below comment box. Will you give me a chance to see your little ones creativity??



  1. Hi.
    Really enjoyed exploring the different ways to coax kiddies into getting involved with vegetables. A genius idea and one I will use. Thank you!

    • Thanks Allan for your views, i am glad that you liked my idea of sharing interesting vegetable shapes to encourage kiddies towards eating vegetables, same as you can do with the fruits. As both are very crucial for growing kids 🙂

  2. Oh Wow! I love, love these ideas! First of all your site is nice, second of all the images of the veggies are so artistic. I love art and yes, it is hard to get kids to eat veggies. I don’t know why but, for some reason you have to do these little tricks every now and then. I have 8 of so, I know.

    I will definitely try this with my kids and see how, this works out. And, of course, we would share our experience. They probably would like that too. I wish I use to home-school and we could have used a site like this.

    Thank you so much for sharing..

    • Thank you so much Lakisha for your views along with appreciation. I am happy that you liked my website, actually being a mother i can understand the kiddy’s issue mostly mums are facing out there. Therefore, the purpose of creating is to help all those mums who don’t get tricks to handle their fussy kids especially at meal time. Kids in their growing age becomes adventurous and fascinate with creative things. They feel bore to eat by sitting at one place without any interesting activity, when you involve them in preparing, cutting, and presenting the vegetables, they feel more happy and show more interest in eating them. I used this trick with my daughter and it really did work 🙂

  3. Hey Sarah, visually these salad and vegetable creations look really appetising, I’m sure most kids will be delighted to sit down and have fun eating this way – great idea. You could also inspire kids to get involved to plan their own meals this way and create a meal for mum & dad too, possibilities are endless – ha!

    Another great way for deceiving kids into eating raw veg is to blend them in a juicer with base fruits such as kiwi fruit and banana to disguise the taste of veg. When our nephew & niece stop with us they love the taste of our creative smoothie drinks yet would never eat the same veg on it’s own because as they say, it’s boring – ha!
    We will certainly give your ideas a try, thanks for your creative healthy food tips,

    • Hi Simon, thank you so much for you comments. Kids now a day are so so clever and they have more exposure to the world as they use internet a lot which is unhealthy. If they don’t like eating healthy then we have to deceive them by following the easy ideas I have mentioned in the article which even super busy parents can do as well.

  4. Hey Sarah
    Great article
    I have a 3 year old son, and he doesn’t like salads at all. I’ll try your tips and try that he has his salads.
    Plz pray. 🙂

    • Hi Huzefa, thank you for your comments. I am happy that you like these ideas and surly you son will love to have salads in these forms.

    • Hi Angee, thank you so much for you appreciation. I am sure your sister’s children will start eating healthy food after following these easy and creative ideas.

  5. This is great! My grandson would love the monkey, in fact, he calls his blanket “monkey”. These are such great ideas. I’m going to try them out with him, but I doubt I could make it look as good as these. Great way to get them to eat veggies!

    • Hi Tammy, it is really a great feeling when my readers like my work and ideas. I am glad that your grandson like the salad mokey, i am sure he will love all these salad ideas when you make these for him.

  6. so so fun! you always have the most creative kid-friendly recipes. I almost doubt if I tried to make one of these that it would look the same and have the same kinda personality! I might just try, and test them out on adults.

    • Hi Penelope, thank you so much for liking my posts and creative ideas. Please share you experience with us after trying these salads out.

  7. WOW! Sarah you have done it again. My daughter will be a fan of this site for sure! This is art hehe not food. I could stare at that surprised lion all day. These are so adorable, I really want to try them and I know my daughter would love them. Thanks again, I love your site!

    • Hi Melissa, thank you so much for all your appreciation. Cooking food and it’s presentation is an art and I am sure your daughter will love these salads too.

  8. Aww these really are fantastic, even I wanted to eat them. You are right, it is difficult to make many kids eat healthily as most would prefer a sugar laden treat instead, but when you make the food look this attractive they will be thrilled to eat it.
    Getting kids involved in preparing their own food always is the best tried and tested way to not only help their imaginations but to get them to try new foods and diversify their taste buds.
    So, I would like to know, did you make all those food animals yourself? They are very creative. Thank you for all your amazing and helpful posts.

    • Hi Stefanie, thank you so much for your comments and for liking my post. These salad ideas are not only fantastic but really very very easy and simple to make also.

  9. Well I am blown away by the kid friendly nature of the website, very well put together and the ricepes for the kiddies food is excellent. Very creative mix of style. Must take you a bit of time to put it all…it is wonderful and yummy as well. Good one.

  10. I love your site. You are full of the most unique and adorable ways to get kids to want to eat their veggies. This looks like fun and it is nutritious.

    • Thank you Wendy for your appreciation. Making simple yet creative meals for our kids encouraging them to eat healthy rather than junk and that’s what the main purpose of sharing these posts with all you:)
