Summer is a perfect time to let your kids play and experiment with food. There are endless learning and teaching moments you can have with food and one of them is making food art for your kids. Food art is not only a medium to enhance a child’s imagination but also a great way to get those fruits and veggies on the plate. If you are dealing with a fussy kid, this is by far the best way to create fondness for food.
But before we begin, kindly ensure no matter what your child’s age is involve them in the food art making process. After they are done making a dog, fish or their favourite cartoon character, they will be much more excited to eat the platter. So, let’s begin!

- Cut the watermelon in triangle pieces and place it as mountains on the bottom of the plate
- Take a piece of bread and spread cheese or mayo and place it below the hot air balloon
- The balloon strings and birds can be made of the watermelon shell
- And your food art is ready to go
Sail away with these Summer Fruits
To make this foodart, kids will need some help from their mom’s specially to peel of the lychees and assemble it. All you need are these three ingredients – Lychee, Watermelon and Breadstick
- Peel the lychees as place it as waves of the sea
- Cut the breadstick into three parts of different sizes
- Place the smaller one below, followed by a middle size and larger one at the top. The idea is to depict a boat
- Slice the Watermelon in triangle sizes and place them as shown in the picture above

Before i give out some details, let me inform you – this is my 51st foodart and I have been privileged to be associated with a brand who believes in the importance of nurturing beautiful moments. Their products are specially designed to make the life of a parent easy,offer quick fix and create happy family times. Since I love the brand and can say I am an unofficial brand ambassador, my current work is a simple memento towards my liking to the brand – Cookiie Pie Co.
This project has been one of my toughest foodart. The colourful, bright logo of the brand was not as easy it seems. Specially carving out the relationship of mom-baby with the white elephants was a result of many failed attempts that went into making the foodart for Cookiie Baby Carriers.
After much of trial and error, I finally found a way through to make the foodart for Cookiie Baby Carriers. Although, it’s not the perfect one as elephants are really tough to make, this one has been the best of my creations.
So here are the ingredients which I have used to plate the logo of the brand and make it quirky, believable and yummy.
- Curd Rice – I have tempered the rice with curd to semi solid consistency so that i can craft out the elephants shape well
- I have made use of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and Roohafza to draw out the elephants and make it resemble the logo
- Eyes – i made use of whole black pepper
- For the rainbow colours surrounding the elephant, I have made use of
- Tomatoes – Red colour
- Carrot – Orange colour
- American Corn – Yellow colour
- Peas – Green Colour
- For the blue colour, I left the space as i made use of a blue plate instead of white one
With all the right set of ingredients – the foodart for cookiie baby carriers was ready to serve.
I hope you have liked this foodart. It is really special to me and hence i would love to hear from you some suggestion/ feedback.
Also you would like to see some of my foodarts made in the past, you can check it here
Hey moms, you don’t need to use mayonnaise or cream cheese all the time to make food attractive and healthy.. you can get to your roots and make something in-house as i did while making this Easter bunny.
Guess what the bunny is made off ?? Homemade white butter, spread on bread. A perfect breakfast combination with some oranges.( You can use any fruit of your choice). And since this foodart would be incomplete without Easter eggs, i have ensured to give little sweet treats -Gems to the munchkins of the house.
Hope you enjoyed this healthy easter bunny treat and as usual keep showering some love
