Play with your Produce

We all want our kids to love fruits and vegetables. Here are some fun ideas to use at holidays and all year round to make eating fruits and vegetables even more fun. 

Green olive, cherry tomato, and peppercorns for head. 
Try this fun idea from Place hummus in a zip-lock bag and snip one corner of the bag to making a piping bag. Pipe the hummus onto a plate in the shape of a turkey head and neck. Design vegetables for the feathers and feet, use a black bean or raisin for the eye, and a piece of carrot for the beak.

One half of a pear, grapes, blueberries, and cheese for beak and legs. Use poppy seeds or cut a piece of raisin for the eyes.

Leaf-shaped pizza spread with your favorite sauce, cheese, and then loaded with diced yellow, orange, red, and green bell peppers. For specific directions, see this recipe from


Snowman banana kabobs: place three slices of banana, a triangle of red apple, and a grape on a skewer. Press mini chocolate chips into bananas for eyes and buttons. Slide a pretzel stick through the middle for arms, and tiny piece of carrot for the nose.
