Fun Food: The Coral Snake Snack


coral snake snacks12345

Although Erica thought this snack looked more like a caterpillar, and TJ asked if they were supposed to be dragons, everyone was intrigued.  To make the snake, we skewered slices of strawberries and bananas until we had a snake body.  This could supplement a great lesson if you wanted to talk about Coral Snakes!

To make this snack more filling, I included some

Neufchatel cheese Wraps

  • 1 whole wheat wrap
  • Neufchatel cheese to spread
  • Strawberry jam
  • bananas

Spread cheese, jam, and bananas on the wrap. Roll up and eat.  Making wraps is so much easier when you buy the large product labeled wraps.  Often I will purchase whole wheat tortilla’s for my wraps, but they just don’t roll up as well as the product labeled as wraps.

This is so cute and almost real looking. Love how healthy you made it, good for the kids to learn something at the same time. Thank you.

That’s a great one for the letter N. I’ve always used that one {and I say “that one” because I’m not sure I can even spell it correctly!} over the regular kind of cream cheese!

And what an adorable snake! I’m going to have to make this one for the kiddos ~ I think I already have everything I need! Hooray!

Hi Jessica,
The little chunks of banana are actually held on by toothpicks. Although the banana was pretty slimy, so it may have stayed on without anything. The black dots are made from some black writing icing I have on hand for stuff like this.

Love this! My son is doing a snake report for school right now, and we are living and breathing snakes over here (not sure how I feel about that…). Anyway, I’m definitely showing this to him tomorrow. Maybe we can make it as a snack for his class to go along with his report!! How fun would that be!

And I was just introduced to Neufchatel cheese a couple of months ago. LOVE it! Seriously, just as good as cream cheese, but healthier. And I like that it’s softer, which makes it great for recipes and spreading!

We’re going to attempt these tomorrow!! My son wanted to incorporate the black stripes so we’re going to use dark chocolate frosting as the “glue.” We’ll see how they turn out, but he’s really excited! I’ll try to remember to take a picture and send it your way!

Okay, so I realized that this is a HEALTHY food blog so frosting might not be the best idea! 🙂 My son’s teacher suggested Nutella, and I even thought about purple grapes.

Oh my goodness, this is such a cute way to make healthy snacks for kids. I have seen so many people make cakes in a snake shape but never bananas and strawberries. Such a great idea… Thankyou
