If you have ever been to a birthday party you are familiar with the scene: Kids fighting over Dora’s eye, Spiderman’s web, Justin Bieber’s mouth & more.  An easy way to bring this excitement into the fresh offerings at your next party is to make Themed Fruit & Veggie Trays.

I recently did a news segment on serving fresh, healthy foods to young children at birthday parties.  I made trays based off my favorite Sesame Street characters.  The trays were a big hit in the news studio… and they are always a big hit with kids, too!  When kids are fighting over the Cookie Monster’s mouth… and it’s a pile of blackberries instead of a gooey chunk of icing & vanilla cake – what’s not to love?!
