This after-school healthy snack board is impressive and appetizing for your kids and couldn’t be easier for you to pull together this busy time of year. Scale the board and select items according to your crew! Opt for a variety of colors and textures if possible.
Make the hummus and crackers in advance (if not serving store-bought) so it is quick and easy to pull this board together.
- Fresh fruit (pictured above: cherries, berries, grapes, clementines)
- Raw vegetables (pictured above: English cucumbers, bell peppers cut into stars with vegetable cutters, sugar snap peas, carrots, radishes and purple cauliflower)
- Avocado (pictured above: an avocado rose sprinkled with flaky sea salt)
- Homemade Hummus
- Homemade Almond Flour Crackers (try my Super Seed Crackers if nut-free)
- Daiya Slices (here I used American, Cheddar Style and Mozzarella Style)*
- Other ideas: unsweetened dried fruit, freeze-dried fruit, banana chips, homemade granola bars, energy bites, popcorn, nuts and seeds.
- Select a couple items from each category above. Arrange the largest items first in groupings on a cutting board, platter, large plate or rimmed baking sheet.
- Add mini bowls and fill with dips or smaller items that you don’t want to get lost on the board.
- Fill in any gaps or holes you have leftover to complete the overall look.
- Serve immediately and bask in all the glory of your new super-parent status. Or, go make dinner.
