How to Cook Healthy Food for Kids : Deconstructed Deviled Egg

Imagine a fresh, colorful salad with cranberries, pecans, mixed greens, tomatoes, and bell peppers.  Adults may like complex meals comprised of many ingredients which blend harmoniously together.  However, too many mixed ingredients can be confusing for a kid.

Kids like to be able to easily identify what they are eating.  I find that Cailya prefers to be served food items one at a time as opposed to all at once.  Colin enjoys using trays that are compartmentalized so he can clearly recognize each food that he is eating.

One way you can make food less distracting and more appealing to kids is deconstructing it.  You can take the basic elements of a dish, change their forms, and put the elements back together in a way that is more kid-friendly.

The next time you are having trouble constructing a meal for your kids, just think, "deconstruction!"
That's what I did in the following clip:
