Healthy & Simple Snack-time Dragonflies

It's snack time! Time to try this healthy and fun treat with your kids! And it's a great way to encourage your toddler to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Here's what you need:
an apple (I used a golden delicious, but use whatever your child prefers.)
a carrot (peeled)
a grape ( I used red seedless, but again, use what your child prefers.)
Cut your apple into quarters and remove the core. Then make four thin slices for the wings. Trim the carrot to the length you would like your dragonfly to be. Then assemble everything as shown in the pictures above. Use the grape as the head.
Fun, simple, and healthy! Much better than serving over-processed snacks to your little one. My son usually avoids carrots at all cost, but he actually found them appealing and even ate a few bites when I presented them this way.
