Try a Back-to-School Snack Platter!
Summer is drawing to a close, meaning it is time for millions of school children to head back to class!
But those kids will want some snacks when they come home, and what better way to do that than to have a back-to-school, after-class snack platter waiting for them? In addition, these platters are a great way to clean your fridge from the extra produce that needs to be eaten instead of wasted.
You will want a nice platter for your child's charcuterie. You don't need to use the same plates you serve all your meals on. Instead, mix things up and make the afternoon fun with a Teak Wood Board for this new routine. With these different serving styles, some kids have even learned to try new foods because of the novelty.
So, what should you put on an after school snack tray? Try just about everything!
Anything sitting in the pantry or nearing the end of its shelf life in the refrigerator is a viable option for being added to your snack platter. Fill the platter up with fresh fruits and vegetables, boiled eggs, hummus, cheese, deli meat, crackers, pretzels, almonds, trail mix, and chocolate chips for some added fun.
For a savory snack, fill the platter with peppers, hummus, hard-boiled eggs, deli meats, crackers, pretzels, carrots, and other veggies.
For something sweeter, try apples with caramel or honey, raspberries with chocolate chips, or blueberries with yogurt dip.
Most kids are much more willing to eat produce while it's out and available for picking than they would be if you tried to coerce them to do so at a different time, so you could try sneaking in carrots, celery sticks, or new fruits and veggies! With tasty hummus or dips, your children might discover their new favorite food.
