SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- If you have picky eaters in your house, you know how tough it can be to make food that they'll enjoy. Well, we have some ideas for you to create fun, healthy treats and meals that are sure to appeal to even the pickiest of eaters.

Pauline Martinez of Perk Eatery joined us on Wednesday's Good Morning Arizona with some easy and healthy ways to doctor up your kids' food to make it fun.

You can make a sandwich into an owl face, and kids will love eating it (along with some veggies!)

A piece of whole-wheat bread with peanut butter can be made over into a honey-bear. And cut up cucumber as a serpent on a plate.

Turn a pancake into a smiling sun, using strawberries around the edges and blueberries as a smiley face. You can make a Mickey Mouse pancake, too, just by adding "ears" using smaller pancakes.
