How To Make Easy Snack to Toddler
Quick easy step to bussy mom.This is a nostalgic dish I used to whip up with two of those four younger sisters I was telling you about. This is a fun one for kids over ten years old--they can help chop, peel and arrange. And because it has fruit, cheese and veg--it's terribly good for them!


Step 1:
Slice a few mild cheeses like Monterey jack, Swiss and cheddar, but try at least one "stinky" cheese. A good place to start might be bleu cheese--because you could drizzle some honey over it for added palatability.

Step 2:
Slice (or assign a slicer) Granny Smith apples, oranges, bananas and grapes. Also try either kiwi, mango or pomegranate--at least one fruit which is new to them.

Step 3:
Chop up some broccoli florets, carrots, (not the mini orange thumbs!) radishes, and hearts of palm. The hearts of palm are, obviously, not your run-of-the-mill crudite-platter offering. But kids are usually interested in their salty-sweet soft-crunch. And it expands their horizons!

Step 4:
You could whip up a batch of my famous Green Goddess dressing and dip. Or, if you're lazy, a pre made container of a dill dip.

Step 5:
Choose an arranger and a garnisher, depending on how many kids you're cooking with. Pile everything on one, huge platter and serve with mini plates.

Relevent Tips
Each time you make it, use a different cheese, veg and fruit. Even if they hate it, you're trying something new. Maybe they'll loathe hearts of palm, but they'll be mad for papaya!
