Try this cute holiday snack at your next Christmas get together. Kids sometimes will opt to go for the sweets but putting things in fun shapes will help steer them in the right direction. This snack looks appealing and also includes nutritious foods from two of the four food groups. I always like to include at least one fruit or veggie with my daily snacks, that way it’s easy to get those daily servings in from Eating Well With Canada’s Food Guide.
All you need is:
- Laughing Cow Cheese or Mozzarella Cheese cut in triangles
- Cheddar cheese cut in a star
- Broccoli shredded
- Diced red peppers
- Pretzel stick for the stalk
