Healthy "Traffic Light" Veggie Snack

If you have school age children you know how difficult it can be to get them to eat a healthy after school snack. Well I saw this on Facebook today and thought they were the cutest dang things...who wouldn't want to eat one of these stop lights? And as it happened, I had everything needed in my frig to make these.

What is used to  make these darling lights are as follows...

Celery stalks cut in 3 inch pieces
cream cheese
red, yellow and green bell peppers

ONE: Spread cream cheese onto the celery smoothly and clean the edges of the celery

TWO: Cut circles from your bell peppers using a metal Wilton frosting tip.

THREE: Pop the circle out of the frosting tip using a sharp knife.

FOUR: Place the circles on the the cream cheese.

FIVE: Skewer the celery with wood skewer.

And ENJOY!!!

  3. Such a great idea! Making food fun for kids is half the battle. Love it!

  4. Dearest Barbara,
    That is a really healthy snack for kids! Found you at Dee's blog and came over for a visit. We too have adopted children. One is a foster-daughter who was deaf and lives in Indonesia where we also worked and lived. We did pay for her college and university education and she graduated with one point above average by reading lips! We felt so proud. Later we gave her a Danish Oticon hearing aid for both ears and when she called me the first time, saying: 'Mama I can hear you now!' made me cry... I will never forget that. My sisters never accepted our girls, they are 'fake' as they call it... not REAL. But a Mother's Love comes from the heart and not from the womb!
    Have a great weekend and wishing you well in all you do.

  5. What a clever idea! I was wondering what you used for the lights, very creative! I just started a new link party and would love for you to come over and share your post or any social media sites. Talkin’ About Thursday - http://designeddecor.com/talkin-about-thursday-link-party4/

  6. Great idea, have pinned as planning a car theamed birthday party!

  7. Favorite afternoon snack in my daycare and asked for almost always: graham crackers with peanut butter. All of my "kids" love veggies so getting them to eat them is no problem. Speaking of snacks, I think it is time to eat.
