One of the best ways I have found to convince kids to eat healthier is to make eating healthy FUN and this rainbow snack platter is clearly the most fun idea I have thought of yet!
Rainbow Snack Platter
I got the idea for this scrolling on Instagram (of course) the other day when I saw a similar snack platter that was made into the shape of a flower. Since we love all things rainbow and unicorns at this girl dominated household I thought I’d give my best shot at a rainbow snack platter!
I can’t wait to have more fun with this and make it for themed rainbow birthday parties or a fun St. Patrick’s Day snack, but in the meantime who doesn’t love a rainbow on a random Tuesday!?
Honesty Hour: it took me a long time to make this. Probably because I wanted it to look super perfect (which it still doesn’t) I spent a ton of time rearranging the fruits and veggies to line up correctly.
Making a Rainbow Snack Platter
I wanted to include a variety of both veggies and fruits so I threw cherry tomatoes and cucumbers in there. I also added in marshmallow clouds to make it fun and as you can probably guess those were the first to get eaten so I made a 5 marshmallow limit for my daughter.
Little did I know, when I went to do something else she ate way more than her share… little stinker.
You can also easily substitute the fruits and veggies for different choices if your kids don’t like them. Here are some colorful ideas:
- Cheese cubes
- Green grapes
- Apple slices
- Carrot sticks
- Pineapple slices
- Celery sticks
