Kids Fruit Snacks

Turn snack time into fruit time with these ideas:

Pineapple Rings: Two pineapple rings cut in half. Place in a dessert dish and using an ice cream scoop, place three scoops of cottage cheese on each ring. Top with maraschino cherries.

Sea Creature: Line a plate with lettuce leaves. For the body, arrange drained, canned whole sliced peaches or pears turned down on the lettuce to make the body. Add two fresh apple slices (brush apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown) place under the top edge of the peaches or pears to make wings. (Turn red apple peeling turn away from the peaches or pears)

With a vegetable peeler, cut long, thin strips about 5 from a carrot for the tail. Use a dab of soft-cottage cheese or peanut butter to attach two raisins for the eyes. Slice a maraschino cherry in half and use for the mouth.

Bread Spread: Split and toast an English muffin and spread generously with American cheese spread. Top with one or two drained canned pear or peach slices or pineapple cubes.

Toast a Bagel: Spread one bagel half with prepared mustard and top with a slice of American cheese, a slice of ham and the other bagel half.

Cooking is fun.

Find a recipe and carefully read it. Assemble the ingredients and equipment that will be needed. Be sure you have an ADULT present to help you at all times.


Always use hot pads or potholders when cooking or baking and make sure an ADULT is there to help you.

Always wash your hands before you start to cook! Use soap and water, clean all parts of your hands really good.

Don't forget: Help clean up after you have finished baking or cooking. Mom & Dad will like that and so will your grandparents.

Best of all, Have Fun and Enjoy!
NOTE:   All ADULTS should help a child read the recipe first to make sure all the ingredients are available and the type of supervision that will be needed for each recipe.
