We feel that making the food look good... makes the children want to try it!

Make every meal special and fun! We make this for meals at home or to take to pot lucks or picnics... with a few minutes of time arranging the food, you end up with a beautiful presentation! Always a big hit!

You can decide how much of any one ingredient you want on your platters depending on your amount of guests.

We also do this with other fruits and vegetables like fresh green beans, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, cantalope, blueberries, etc.
