Food Art: The Frog Prince
This Frog Prince snack is not only super cute, but it’s loaded with ingredients to help get your kids to eat their veggies! It is so easy, your kids can even help you make it.
What You’ll Need
1 cup of Green Giant Summer Sweet Peas, cooked
1 slice of cheddar cheese
2 slices of cucumber
1 slice of tomato
4 black currants, or raisins
a kitchen knife (please supervise children if allowing them to slice)
How To Make It
1. Place your cooked peas on a plate and quickly arrange them into a frog shape – it’s basically a circle shape with 2 smaller circle shapes coming off the top.
2. Give your frog some eyes – use 2 slices of cucumber and 2 raisins or black currants.
3. Next, we’ll give the frog a mouth and some nostrils. To make the mouth, slice your tomato slice in half and slice out the inside, leaving only the outer ring. Place this on your frog. To give him a nose, simply place 2 raisins or black currants in the middle of his face.
4. Finally, let’s make this frog a prince! Cut your slice of cheddar cheese into a small crown and place it on top of your frog.
