RECIPE-Summer is here with fun fruity and ‘veggie’ goodness!

For the”choo-choo” Choose More Vegetables Train

I used carrot batons for the train track, peppers as the carriages and cucumber as the train wheels held in by cocktail sticks (be careful of children with cocktail sticks).Fill the carriages with hummus, salsa, guacamole or other vegetables or fruit!

For the Sleeping Star Melon Cradle

Use star or other shaped cookie cutters to make shapes with fruit and/or vegetables. I used various types of melon, colourful peppers and pineapple in this image.

The sleeping baby inside is an orange with a soother and eyes drawn on using marker!
