My BIG hope with this snack was to encourage him to try some new veggies and snacks that I really think he would like if I could just get him to try them!
His go-to healthy snacks these days are nuts, string cheese, green apples, air popped popcorn, clementines, cucumbers and carrots. Surprisingly, he actually likes more veggies than fruits, so I added blueberries, grapes and strawberries to the mix hoping he'd like those. Bell peppers and snap peas were a hit -- maybe he's just not that into fruit?
I saw these cute carrot and cucumber flowers on Pinterest. He thought it was fun to eat the pretend "flowers" of their "stems". I included a bunny shaped pb&j and flower shaped cheese too.
This was easy to put together and really fun for my little guy! I mean, who doesn't love a buffet?!
How do you make snack time, and trying new foods, fun or interesting for your children?
