Fruity dragonflies!

So for the kids snack time this morning, I decided to get a little creative again! Over the summer months the kids have loved seeing the dragonflies in our garden, so I thought I would try and make them some fruity dragonflies!

I used halved grapes to form the main body, apple pieces for the wings, a banana slice for the head and raisins for the antenna. 

Theses little dragonflies disappeared super quickly into little mouths – the kids absolutely loved them! If you have kids who struggle to try new foods, I say give this a try! Kids tend to love it if you get creative with their food, and will be much more willing to try it if it’s presented in a cute, fun way! 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar – a snack!

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I love getting creative with food! It helps encourage my kids to eat well, and really helps fussy eaters to try new foods. Take a look at my food ideas page for inspiration on encouraging kids to eat healthier and for family food ideas and recipes.

For snack time this morning I decided to make my own version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar for my little ones to munch on! I used cucumber slices for the catepillar’s body, a strawberry slice for his head and grape pieces as the antennae and mouth. I also added raspberries to form the ground and some more strawberries as butterflies.

The kids loved their story themed snack and even asked for more. A fantastic way to encourage kids to eat!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

A dino snack!

My five year old son loves dinosaurs at the moment so I thought it would be a cute idea to turn his snack into something of the dinosaur variety! (You can see my other food ideas for kids here)!

I used cucumber to make the dinosaurs body, raspberries for his eye and for the ground, and satsuma segments and a raspberry for a sun.

Fruity fish!

My little boy was feeling a little hungry the other morning so off I went to the kitchen to prepare him a snack. I decided to make him a fruity fish to add a little fun to his snack time!

I used carrots as the body, cucumber and grapes for the eye, cucumber seaweed and grapes for bubbles.
