Rice Cake “Faces”- These are a fun snack idea for kids, you put out whatever toppings you want and they assemble their own! You can even have them with the prep work-slicing bananas and apples for example. The great thing about this is that they could actually have something from every food group on their cracker-making it a very nutritious snack idea. It's also a great idea for the picky eater-they may actually experiment and try some new foods! My kids absolutely love this snack. It takes a little time to setup and cleanup, but it's well work it. They usually end up eating two or three of these apiece. You could also consider making for a lunch-snacks can also be meal ideas for kids when you include nutritious choices from every food group! Let them do the spreading, chopping and decorating. Get them involved-it's great for developing fine motor skills and a little freedom in their meal selection.
Here's how it works:
Set out some Brown Rice Cakes (I buy them at Trader Joe’s or Costco)
Top with a variety of toppings that the kids can put on themselves. They can make faces or animals out of the toppings.
