Make your Thanksgiving fun and stress-free! Making food fun is a great way to get together with the family and enjoy homemade healthy dishes. The kids will have a blast being involved in the process, and they will be eating healthy snacks too. It is the perfect way to enjoy and share family time during the holiday season.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to cook wonderful traditional meals like my favorite Green Bean Casserole or a delicious and comforting Creamy Homemade Corn Casserole. Cooking with fresh ingredients and avoiding cans and boxes is the way to show your loved ones you care.
7 Healthy Thanksgiving Fun Food Ideas I collected from the web:
1.- Turkey Veggie Platter. Awesome way to decorate your Thanksgiving table and encourage kids to eat their veggies. Pick your favorite veggie dips and have fun making the veggie turkey with the entire family.
2.- Cheese Reindeers.- Made with laughing cow cheese. Cut a regular pretzel in half and you get the perfect antlers! You can use edible eyes or peppercorn for the eyes. Use green olives or raisins for the noses. Perfect for a holiday party too! For more party ideas check out my Disney Frozen Fun Food Ideas post.
3.- The Turkey Fruit Platter.- Again another great way to decorate your Thanksgiving table! Fresh fruit is always a must at any party. Get kids involved and make it a Thanksgiving fun activity! More fun fruit ideas here: Fun Food Pops Ideas.
4.- Turkey leg popcorn.– Creative and healthy snack idea for Thanksgiving! You need Brown Paper Lunch Bags, White Scrapbooking Paper and glue. Just fill your bags with popcorn and glue them with the paper bones. I recommend using Organic Popcorn to avoid GMOs. If you don’t want to do it yourself I like this brand: Boomchickapop Sea Salt Popcorn.
5.- Cheese platter.- Another easy and fun Thanksgiving idea: use fun Thanksgiving 8 Piece Cookie Cutter Set. Cut some cheese, deli meat, fruits and veggies and serve them in a platter. This cheese tray can be served with Homemade Cheddar Cheese Crackers too!
6.–The fruit cornucopia.- A whimsical way to serve up some healthy fruit. The waffle cone adds a great crunch and you can add your favorite yogurt inside. Just be sure to serve right away as the cone does get soggy after a while. You can also cut the fruit using some fun Cutters or the Mini Cookie Cutter Set
7.- Turkey toast.- Great for breakfast or a healthy snack. You can use your favorite nut butter and toppings like chopped nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, raisins and more! I really like Justin’s Nut Butter Honey Almond with toasts or fruits like apples. For more fun ideas for breakfast check out my Teddy Bear Toasts post.
