Pumpkin Veggie Tray

on October 18, 2012

Are your little ones getting excited for fall and halloween?  Here is a great way to get them to not only eat their veggies but actually have them enjoy it!  This veggie tray is shaped to look like a carved pumpkin so it is the perfect compliment to the season!

Pumpkin Veggie Tray

A large serving tray or cutting board
1 large bag of baby carrots
1 cucumber
1 head of broccoli
1 carton of your favorite veggie dip
Ramekins or small bowls

Preparation:

1. Create an outline for your pumpkin by laying some of the carrots out in an oblong circle. Once the carrot outline is to your liking, carefully fill in the circle with the rest of the carrots.

2. Remove enough of the carrots to create a cucumber-filled smile. Set the carrots you removed on top of the other carrots within your pumpkin.

3. Place halved cucumber slices in the space you created for your carrot pumpkin’s smile.

4.Fill your ramekins with a veggie dip of your choice (I love to make this one) and shimmy them into place where you want the pumpkin’s eyes and nose to be.

5. Slice off the stem of the broccoli head. Place the broccoli at the top of your pumpkin.
