I'm I being too hard on my kids to ask them not to play with their food? I give them a snack of raisins and pretzels and they are stabbing the raisins with their pretzels, but this causes them to fall off onto the floor. They also make pictures with the pretzels. I admit it is creative and kind of cute, but it is playing with food and I don't want it to become a bad habit. So what do you think?Answer Question

If they are playing with their food they must not be hungry. I would take the food away, Then tell them they most not be hungry.

If they are creative and are still eating....... perhaps a happy medium can be found.
They may only play while sitting at the patio table and only with snack....... or what ever works for you. That way they dont associate playing with the food with sitting at the dinner table. Allow a little bit of fun and creativity... but only when it is appropriate.
