If you're working hard to put healthy food on your children's plates, shouldn't they be playing with healthy food? These sets provide lots of healthy food for lots of creative play. Food pieces vary with the set but might include fancy slices of carrots, celery, lettuce leaves, onion wedges, tomato slices and wedges; all with a satisfying weight and just enough pliability. The grill set includes meat pieces but the other sets are all fruits and veggies. The dishes are adorable and "realistic" for little hands. What well-stocked kitchen doesn't need a soup tureen, salad bowl or serving platter? Each set includes the cooking and serving dishes appropriate to the theme: tongs, ladles, spoons are all there - just what you would need for serving soup or salad or grilling dinner. I have to admit, though, that my favorite is the grill set with its bundles of asparagus and ears of corn. The plastic bushels introduce a nice variety of fruit and vegetables, sized comfortably for little hands and just begging for creative play involving trips to the farmer's market.
