You eat with your eyes first! Consider trying to make pleasing plates. It’s not going to happen some days but try it when you can. Here are a few ideas:
-buy a few Oriental looking plates. I used the ones below when my children were younger.
-try clear glass plates. They’re inexpensive.
-prepare Mezza which is a variety of appetizers, dips, salads and garnishes. The one below is a small one on a Himalayan pink sea salt block with Baba Ganouj (mostly eggplant and tahini).
-try colored paper plates and cutlery in your favorite sports team colors.
-try different shaped plates. We enjoy the square ones.
