Serving up fruit and veggies in festive creative ways can allow students to have fun while enjoying healthy food. Sometimes it can be just as easy to place colorful fruits and veggies in creative shapes to match the occasion. Veggies aren’t always the go to breakfast item, so serving them in fun ways can be a great addition to the regular fruit servings on the breakfast menu. Increasing your servings of fruit and vegetables at each meal can ensure you get the recommended servings each day.
Try this fun way to serve veggies at your KES Club for Halloween:
- Baby Carrots
- Round Tray
- Place the baby carrots onto the round tray in a pumpkin shape.
- Place the olives onto the tray to form the eyes and nose.
- Cut the cucumber into slices and arrange to form the mouth.
- Cut a few stems of broccoli to form the pumpkin stem.
