Fun Ways to Cut Fruits and Vegetables

Can't get your kids to eat certain fruits and vegetables? Sometimes something as simple as changing the shape of a food, from the way kids are used to seeing it to something different and fun, can make it that much more appealing to them.

Watch this video to pick up a few tricks I use to make even the most unloved foods become immediate favorites!

    can you show in more detail how to do the melon balls? I have tried it and did not get balls, but rounded long things.

    Great ideas!! We have used some of them (love our mandolin and today I used the julienne peeler on an apple and carrot, took off a chunk of my thumb, LOL!). But where did you get the mini cutters? I've looked all over and can't find any. I was skeptical buying them off Amazon without seeing the size in person.

    It's getting hot now. I put my sons thermos on the freezer over night and the next morning filled it with fresh fruit

    Should use the mini cutters on the inside of the pepper, much easier to cut from that side!
