Healthy Christmas Tree Snack
Spice up your child's snack this holiday season!
Fun "themed" snacks can help increase fruit and vegetable intake within your family. When foods are served in a creative form, children are more likely to eat the food served regardless if they may not have previously chosen to eat that specific food.
This snack is perfect for children to get involved in creating. Once the apples and cheese have been cut, assembly is child proof. Their involvment in the preparation may increase acceptance of more fruits.
What is needed for this creation?!
A slice of yellow cheese (preferable low fat)
5 -7 small pretzel sticks
8 green apple slices
8 craisins or raisins
