Here’s a fun and healthy kids snack idea that’s easy to put together – Campfire Crunch.
Lately, my kiddos want to eat all the time. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s summer, they’re more active, maybe they’re bored or they’re going through a growth spurt. I figured with all their constant want/need for snacking…I’d better serve something healthy. But why not make it fun too.
I original saw this Campfire Crunch in a recent issue of Disney Family Fun magazine. The article credited the book Bean Appetit: Hip and Healthy Ways.
My kids love this kid-friendly snack dish. Why wouldn’t they?! Everything included in this edible campfire – grapes, pretzels and cheese – is something they love to eat. It was an instant hit. It’s all in the presentation, right?! Just like when I served Octopus Hotdogs and Fishies.
To make this edible campfire:
- Cut grapes in half for the stones.
- Mini pretzel sticks as the wood/sticks
- Cheese slices (cut into flame shapes) as the fire flames
NOTE: I wedged the cheese flames between pretzel sticks to keep them vertical.
My kiddos also wanted to have “people” around the campfire. So my daughter placed regular mini pretzels around it and we imagined they were the people.
Have you served any fun snacks to your kids lately?
