This simple snack is sure to be a hit with the kids. Let them get creative woth decorating their tree. Dried fruit and tomatoes are other great ornament options.


1-2 stalks celery
1 slice ham
1-2 baby carrots
1 cheese stick
small section of a yellow pepper


Use cut celery arrange on an angle to create the shape of the tree.  Slice a baby carrot into wheels for the ornaments.  Cut a yellow pepper into the shape of a star for the top of the tree.
Create the trunk by rolling a slice of deli ham into a one inch wide roll-up and folding it in half.  Slice the bottom off to create a straight line if you wish.
My favorite part of this snack are the snowflakes.  I created them by slicing some string cheese into wheels, then carefully slicing little triangles out of them (from the outside in).
Serve with a little ranch for dipping, and enjoy!
(My kids ate this whole snack up!  So much good fiber and protein!)

Variations: Use cucumbers for the tree (sliced in “sticks”) Use a carrot or two for the trunk and cherry tomatoes for the ornaments Use yogurt for the snowflakes.
