    3 fun kid’s Christmas snacks you need to try

    1. Cucumber Christmas tree

    First up, this cucumber Christmas tree. ‘The children go crazy for it’, Sarah says and it’s a really simple way to get the kids to eat their veg! You can use cut up pieces of wholewheat bread or carrot sticks to form the trunk of the tree, and sliced cucumber to form the classic triangle Christmas tree shape. Get creative with tomatoes and even raisins to form your decorations and the all important star on top of the tree! You can even serve this up with loads of dips so the kids can get dunking.

    2. Rudolph sandwiches

    Christmas Reindeer Face Sandwich
    For this simple reindeer sandwich all you need to do is get crafty with your bread cutting! Just cut out an oval base and then a bent heart shape for the mouth, add marshmallows for eyes with little black dots, a cranberry for the nose and the crusts as the antlers. It’s such a speedy and fun snack hack that you can make in minutes, but will really make the kids very happy! You can choose a filling of your choice and make your children’s favourite sandwiches even more fun!

    How fun are these strawberry Santa hats? ‘Just chop the tops off and add squirty cream underneath and on top,’ Sarah says for such a fun Christmas snack. The top half looks like a Christmas hat which makes them super fun and a lovely, healthy and sweet snack!

    So there you have it, if you’re looking for fab fun ways to make your kids’ party even more festive, then try any of our snack ideas. They’re healthy, fun and the kids absolutely love them, and even better – they’ll only take minutes to make!
