    Another good idea I have found with many kids is use healthy foods but make sure the presentation is new and unusual. Fruit kebobs are an instant hit. Take a wooden skewer, add a few favorites of fresh fruits (strawberry, banana slice, chunk of apple, wedge of orange or pineapple etc.). Thread them onto a skewer, add a small side of non-fat vanilla yogurt for a dipping sauce and immediately a bland bowl of fruit has become an instant hit.

    Another simple idea is red radishes, fresh tomatoes, carrot sticks etc. are just plain boring to a child. But see what happens when they become radish or tomato roses, carrot curls, celery fans etc.. Again a small side of non-fat salad dressing and you will become the best mom with the best ideas of all the parent's on the block.

    Kid's don't need or want a lot of food, they just want something healthy–but different.

    This is a nice recipe, a delightful treat for our child patients. I think I'll offer this next week, a present for the children. Thanks Susan.
