I note quite ruefully that the busybody teacher who told me to stop eating the Play-Dough was the same teacher who said I'd never be an astronaut.
My life, derailed by poor career counseling and dietary advice.
Wow, he's got Soylent Yellow, Red, AND Green! They must live high on the hog on the Enterprise...

I have to wonder why he needs a knife when mother already cut up his food.
Or a spoon for that matter.
And I guess by the 23rd century we don't do place-settings any more, but at least cloth napkins are back.

Did we ever see people actually EAT any of those cube things? I know they ATE, but it was usually something recognizable with food coloring.

I think I remember Kirk wandering the bridge eating those cubes from a small plate at one point. But that's the only time. Made me wonder what they actually used to make them. Prior to that, they could have been bakelite for all we know.

Some kind of cookie dough with food coloring seems reasonable.

Somewhere I saw a claim that they frequently used chunks of melon with food coloring.

Cantaloupe, Watermelon and Honeydew seem to fit the bill.
