This Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board is a great snack or light meal option that your children are sure to love. You can create an attractive board with both nutritious and fun choices that will have your kids trying new foods before you can snap your fingers.
Pick a Large Rimmed Tray
You can build a charcuterie board on any type of food-safe tray.
A rimmed baking sheet is a great option for a snack board.
You’ll want your tray to have short sides so that the snacks are reachable for little hands.
The sides will help ensure that the snacks don’t get scattered all over when the children are choosing their treats.
Provide Smaller Amounts of the Sweet Treats
If you want to control the portion size of certain treats, it’s okay to provide a smaller amount.
Spreading the treat foods out throughout the board will minimize their importance.
The colorful treats will draw attention and the children will be more likely to reach for them.
Use Containers to Wrangle Small Items
If you’re adding small items to your snack trays, like raisins or mini marshmallows, place these treats into a smaller cups or other containers.
The little fingers will have an easier time picking up tiny treats if they’re not sliding all over the tray.
On our snack tray, we put the smaller items into the bottom of red Solo cups that have been trimmed down to 1-2 inches in height.
You can use pretty much anything that you have available.
If you don’t have a lot of supplies, try forming a small bowl out of aluminum foil.
