goodtoknow user Lori Ashby says: ‘This is the frog that I make
for my nephew when he comes round my house and he asks for it every time
he visits. The body and legs are an apple, the mouth cut out and
stuffed with an orange segment and eyes are stems of mushrooms. I hope
you like it as much as he does!’

‘This is one way I encourage my children to eat more fruit – I make giant animals out of it! We all sit round and tuck in, fork in hand, sometimes adding yoghurt or cream. It’s a fun way to ensure all of the family eat their their 5+ a day and can be eaten as a dessert or a snack. It doesn’t take long to prepare and any friends who come to tea always request it. I think they forget its just fruit and enjoy the fun of eating it so much more. Its very versatile as almost any animal and fruit can be used.’ says goodtoknow user Lucy Richards.
‘Here is my fun food for kids – dinosaurs at the watering hole (aka ham and cheese sarnie with homemade tomato soup!).’ says goodtoknow user Sarah Rayment.

‘Making faces with the fruit and veg is a great way to get kids to eat them. The fun is seeing who’s the first to eat the nose, eyes, hair and so on. We had lots of fun!’ says goodtoknow user Sue Butler.
goodtoknow user Rose says: ‘Mine’s a sandwich and make it snappy!’
