Centerpiece Snacking: More Flag Food Fun

Although I’m posting a few US themed ideas for letter-U week,  I’m grateful for Carlyn pointing out yesterday that you can modify these for Canada Day on Friday! Great idea Carlyn!

This centerpiece (seen originally as a fruit platter) was fun for the kids to both make and eat!  You can add it to your holiday décor and put a little fruit dip on the side.  Great healthy appetizer BBQ alternative to potato chips!

Did you know: Blueberries can improve memory!  3 months of eating blueberries daily showed to improve test scores on two different cognitive tests.  (source)

Flags are my favorite thing to show around the summer and these are perfect. How did you get them to stand in the holder? It looks to pretty to eat.

Kerry says:

These are lovely! I too would love to know how you got them to stand up. Thanks!

Amy says:

Hey Dawn and Kerry: a block of foam, like you use if you are doing flower decorating!

I’ll keep eating blueberries then.

Connie says:

I LOVE your natural approach to snacks. I’m horrified when I see all the food coloring people are using in kids’ snacks – so unnecessary!

I saw this on a 4th of July roundup and just had to pin it. I hope you’ll share your best post of the week on my Friday Flash Blog Linky Party going on ALL weekend at The Jenny Evolution.

Christina says:

How do you keep the bananas from turning? I love all your ideas! We are eating the pretzels right now. I spelled my son’s name in pretzels. He loved it.

Amy says:

Christina- that’s awesome! My kids love making letters with food. ha ha
We soak them briefly in pineapple juice. It doesn’t take long. And of course, the centerpiece doesn’t last very long either. I wouldn’t leave it out all day, just a few hours max.
