So our first aim is to make their meal look mouth watering and exciting. You can do this by giving shapes to normal foods like sandwiches, rolls etc. and make them seem different and appealing. You can moreover make food look colourful by adding capsicum, sauces, chutney and other healthy but enticing ingredients to it.
