Instead of stocking up on candy at this time of year, I like to create fun "food art" for the little ones. I visited my son's preschool class this morning and led them through a bunny fruit salad activity. Cute, tasty, and good for them.
Here's what you need:
- canned pear halves, packed in juice
- banana or plantain chips
- raspberries or cherries, cut in half
- fresh mozzarella cheese balls (bocconcini) or mashed dates rolled in coconut for a dairy-free alternative (see below)
- lettuce leaf & carrot stick garnish
The kids loved it. Most of them ate it. My little guy devoured every morsel and asked for more. Ha ha.
