During children's parties, is it possible to serve he althy snacks without ruining the party? Here are some delicious and beautiful ideas.
Make labels, on regular paper or on Avery labels, using a cute color, a nice font and a funny theme. The children will be delighted, and the juice, lemonade or flavored water you serve them will taste even better thanks to your genius ideas!
A peacock of pears
A pear, grapes, a small carrot and blueberries, that's all you need to make this peacock worthy of the most beautiful holidays. It's all in the presentation after all! You can also swap the blueberries for blackberries if you're feeling comical and want to tell “blackberry peacock” jokes all day…
A yogurt bar
Replacing a candy bar with a frozen yogurt bar or just plain yogurt is a good idea for he althy kids. The important thing is to showcase it well and decorate the table where you will put the raisins, coconut and other small bowls of ingredients so that it looks festive.
It looks really hard, but it's less than you think. At least it's not much harder than gutting a Halloween pumpkin. If you don't have the tool needed to form melon balls, cut the insides into cubes and put them back inside your empty shell with other fruit. You can also create other shapes like this little stroller with orange wheels.
Smoothies are always fun, especially when presented well. Find some pretty straws, get out your milkshake glasses or colored plastic cups and put the ingredients suggested by Ricardo in the blender:
- 250 ml (1 cup) of various frozen fruits to taste (strawberries, mango, raspberries, etc.) or a banana
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) of milk
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) plain yogurt
- 15 ml (1 tbsp) honey or sugar
If you are afraid of boring the children with your raw vegetables, decorate your tray with tomato roses. You will impress everyone even though it is really easy to do. Simply peel the tomato gently with a sharp knife and wrap the strip of tomato skin around itself. You can also cut cherry tomatoes, but if you do, expect your delicious artwork to be gone in the blink of an eye!
With a sliced baguette and the ingredients of your choice (smoked salmon, cheese, ham, sliced turkey, etc.), make bite-size pieces and decorate them with cherry tomatoes and olives turned into ladybugs. Add some parsley or lettuce for the leaves, mayonnaise for the eyes, and voila!
There is nothing better to whet children's appetites than to pique their curiosity with fun shapes! Decorate little turkey sandwiches to give them a silly expression, add a tomato on an egg to turn it into a colorful mushroom, build a snowman with cauliflower, serve the salad in scary peppers: have fun according to whatever you have on hand and be creative! Everyone will be asking for more!
A reward for finishing?
With such a he althy table, you can afford a little rainbow of sweets. Nope? If you like the kind, but not the sugar, substitute licorice for peppers and marshmallows for cauliflower or make a fruit rainbow!
