Happy Thanksgiving! This year the holiday falls on November 26th, 2020. While this year has brought so much that was unexpected, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to focus on the positive. And of course, it’s the perfect time to focus on delicious food! We’ve got some fun, easy, and healthy recipes for our kids to make and enjoy this holiday.
Combine your child’s favorite fruit and ice cream cones to create a delicious, healthy, and seasonal treat! Fill sugar or waffle cones (their even shape works best) with your child’s favorite fruits, or even some new ones to try out. Think grapes, small berries, mandarin orange slices, and pomegranate seeds. Layer the cones with a little honey to keep the cornucopia shape!
Cheese and Tortilla Chips
Make a kid-friendly and seasonal cheese and chips plate! Using small, leaf-shaped cookie cutters, cut out slices of cheese. Do the same with cold tortillas and then place them on a cookie sheet into a 350-degree oven to crisp. Watch closely and sprinkle with salt when cooked.
Enjoy this yummy seasonal fruit in a whole new way! Slice apples width-wise (so that you get the pretty “star” in the center where the core is) and place on a baking sheet. Cook at 250 degrees for 1 hour, then flip and cook for 30 more (click here for the complete recipe from Jennifer Tyler Lee!). Sprinkle with cinnamon or enjoy plain.
They say that we eat with our eyes first. This delicious veggie turkey is a perfect example! Layer sliced veggies in concentric arches around a bowl of dip (this will be the turkey’s body). Vegetables like carrots, celery, sliced peppers, and cucumbers work great to create the turkey’s “feathers”. Click here to see how Kid Scoop finished off the turkey head!
This sweet favorite works for all the fall holidays! It’s as simple as peeling the tiny, mandarin or tangerines (such as Cutie brand), leaving the flesh whole. Slice celery stalks to create little stems and stick them in the top of the tangerine to create a delicious little pumpkin!
