Food Fun: Color-Themed Dinners

I am starting a new feature on the blog called Food Fun where I will share some of the ways I make food entertaining for my kids.  Let's face it, if kids are having fun, they are more likely to try new things.  By making healthy foods more of an activity, they will hopefully become adventurous eaters who are open to a wide variety of tastes, colors, textures, and experiences.  

This week I wanted to share with you my color-themed meal.  Occasionally, I will pick a color (with the help of the girls) and plan a meal consisting entirely (as best as I can) of that one color.  It is so much fun for the kids!  For this dinner, we went with an orange theme.  The meal included tomato soup, roasted carrots, grilled cheese panini, and cantaloupe for dessert.  This is a wonderful way to get your kids involved in meal planning.
