Festive Healthy Kids Food for Christmas
Making festive foods is one of my favorites parts of holidays and today I'm sharing three easy but totally adorable ideas. My kids think these are so fun but remember, just because it's cute doesn't mean they will eat it. I have a lot of fun making these and that's a big reason why I do ( because sometimes the kids want nothing to do with it!! ) Check out these ideas below.
Cucumber Tree Toast
A festive twist on a classic tea sandwich! These are fun to make with the kids ( especially when they get to sprinkle the “snow” ❄️ ) and taste so yummy!! Full disclosure: my picky eater won’t eat these!
What you need:
- toasted bread
- cream cheese
- cucumber, thinly sliced and halved
- cheddar cheese slice
- crumbled feta cheese
Take your slice of toasted bread and stamp out a tree using a cookie cutter. Take the tree cutout and lightly spread with cream cheese. Take one cucumber half and slice in half again. Put one of these triangles at the top of the tree and one at the bottom above the stump. Layer the cucumber halves on each side.
Cut out a star in the cheddar cheese. Place it on top of the tree. Now sprinkle with feta cheese snow and enjoy!
And the scraps? Don’t worry they don’t go to waste! The scraps are for my lunch 😂
My kids just lick the peanut butter out of these celery reindeer but I had fun making them 🤷🏻♀️
- celery stalks cut into 2 inch lengths
- peanut butter
- mini pretzel twists
- candy eyes
Spread the peanut butter in the center of the celery stalks and break a pretzel in half. Put the pretzel pieces on the top of the piece of celery.
Add eyes below the pretzel antlers and a berry nose!
Best part about these is you can lay out the ingredients and let the kids make them!
What you need:
- Apples, sliced across and core removed
- Plain yogurt
- Green grapes, quartered
Spread a layer of yogurt on the apple rings. Decorate with green grape “pines” and a raspberry “bow.”
I hope you and your kids enjoy these simple and festive ideas! With just a few ingredients you can create something really fun! If you make one make sure to post it on Instagram and tag me @eatprettydarling.
