Chickies On A Branch

While every kid loves snack time, creating a dish that everyone feels good about can be a daily challenge. Thankfully, these cute chickies are just the trick to get even the pickiest eaters to love their veggies. That’s what we call a #MomWin!

Step 1: Gather your ingredients. You will need:

  • 3 rice crackers
  • Sliced green pepper
  • A few raisins
  • 3 circular slices of Colby-Jack cheese

Carrots cut into half circles, triangles, and longer strips 5.16_chicks

Step 2: Begin your scene by placing your crackers across the center of the plate and then apply 2 slices of carrot to each one. Be sure to place the rounded corners inwards to create the effect of two happy little feet!

Step 3: Now, arrange three pieces of carrot behind each cracker to create a fun poof of plumage. Then arrange your bell peppers underneath your chickies to make the ground they’re standing on.

Step 4: Place a slice of cheese over the center of each cracker, being careful to cover the tops of both carrot “feet.” Now, arrange two raisins and a triangular slice of carrot over each piece of cheese to create a happy face on each chicky.
