Healthy Easy-To-Make Holiday Treats for Kids

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on Pinterest

It’s holiday time and often that means an overdose of sugar. We have a holiday treat that is fun to make & good for you! We love these fruit snowmen that we know your kids will love to make and eat! (We didn’t have the carrot for the nose or the pretzel sticks for the arms so we made due with what we had. They look cuter with pretzel arms 🙂 )


  1. Bananas
  2. Grapes
  3. Carrot
  4. Apple
  5. Bamboo skewers
  6. Raisins
  7. Pretzel sticks


1. For each snowman, you will need three thick slices of banana, a grape, a sliver of carrot, and a triangular piece of apple.

2. Slide the fruit onto the skewer, and then use the carrot slivers for noses, raisins for eyes and buttons, and pretzel sticks for arms.

Experiment with other fruit and vegetables!

    This is such a great idea! And my 3 year old would get a kick out of helping me prepare them too! And they are so much healthier than all the Christmas cookies, cakes, and pies! Thanks!
