Parents of picky eaters, we've found a remedy to ease your child's finicky ways. It's not hypnotism or anything serious. The solution comes in the form of creativity -- and a lot of googly eyes. While you might not want to chow down on a plate of food that's looking back at you, it seems to us at HuffPost Taste that kids just dig it.

After poking around parent-oriented food blogs, we found that kids seem to like foods that resemble something they know: pigs, caterpillars and even monsters. And eyes are almost always involved. So even though you may have been taught to never play with your food, you may want to consider breaking that rule for your kids.
