Recipe by Leandra Rouse | Photo by Samantha Emmons 

This kid-friendly recipe will satiate even the pickiest of eaters. The idea is to make a variety of interesting ingredients available to kids to explore on their own terms. The “recipe” itself is simple. It’s the presentation and availability that makes it special. 

Building a nibble platter is easy! Here are some tips to help get you started: 

  • Select 1 to 2 finger foods from each of the fruit and veggie, protein, snack, and dip options below. 
  • Always try to include 2 to 3 new food items that you don’t typically buy.
  • Think real food rather than packaged food.
  • Get creative with dips.
  • For kids younger than 3 years old, keep food pieces smaller than a pea. Cook or grate hard food like carrots or apples.


Fruit & Veggies

Cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Carrot sliced or grated

Cucumber slices

Red, yellow, and green bell peppers
