Corn Flowers It's hard for little kids to handle a whole ear of corn, but eating scraped-off kernels isn't much fun. A sweet solution: 1. Slice a cooked ear horizontally into pieces that are four rows wide. The kernels will look like petals. 2. Push in a lollipop stick for the stem. Talk about nutritious -- corn creams other veggies in its amount of heart-healthy antioxidant zeaxanthin. Not only is this kid friendly but really super for parties!
