Festive Thanksgiving Snack That Kids Will Gobble Up
It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks I will be taking down the china and my kids will be arguing over who gets to pass the gravy boat. How did Thanksgiving sneak up on us so quickly? And while we may be more focused on a very delicious menu plan for the holiday, my kids can feel a little left out of the festivities. So this year, I am taking a more kid-friendly approach to Thanksgiving with a Festive Thanksgiving Snack that kids will “gobble” up. Literally. See how these adorable Thanksgiving turkeys make the perfect snack (or appetizer) for your kids to enjoy this season, made easy with Frigo® Cheese Heads® Snacking Combos.
When a Snack is More Than Just a Snack
When my daughter began preschool this fall, I noticed right away that her appetite sky-rocketed. Snack at school, pre-lunch snack when we get home from school right into lunch and then another snack before dinner – this girl is a MONGREL now when it comes to eating. While giving her the crunchy stuff may keep her happy for short while, I know this little preschooler needs a lot more protein-rich snacks to keep her tummy full and happy for longer. Frigo® Cheese Heads® Snacking Combos provide that “more filling” snack between meals with a variety of tasty cheese and meat stick combos that are perfect for little hands.
Festive Thanksgiving Snack Idea for Kids | Thanksgiving Turkeys
I can’t help but get into a good theme, especially around the holidays. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to up our snacking to the next level with this festive Thanksgiving snack. The Thanksgiving turkey becomes the star of this yummy snack with bright colors and a variety of tasty kid-friendly eats in an easy and fun presentation – kids will definitely gobble up this snack idea!
What You Will Need:
- Bosc Pears – ones with extra round bottoms work nicely 🙂
- Cheese and Meat Sticks, like Frigo® Cheese Heads® Snacking Combos
- Begin by placing 5 toothpicks in the middle of the round bottom area of the pear, about 1/2-3/4 inches apart. These will be your turkey’s tail feathers.
- Cut your cheese and meat sticks into bite sized pieces. Place cheese and meat pieces on toothpicks in desired design.
- Break 1 toothpick into quarters. Place 2 pieces into the top of the pear. Add two blueberries for the turkey’s eyes.
- Cut a piece of cheese into a triangle. Secure the turkey’s beak with a toothpick onto the pear.
- Cut strawberry into a thin triangle. Add to the side of the beak with a toothpick for the warble.
- ENJOY! (Be sure to remove toothpicks before eating.)
I love that this festive Thanksgiving snack provides a wonderful variety of kid-favorite finger foods. Cheese, meat, and fruit together in a colorful, fun and playful theme makes snack time so much more fun!
