This Kiwi Christmas Tree is a healthy festive snack for kids. It is great for getting kids involved in the kitchen.
Every day in December I have been trying to make a healthy themed Christmas snack for Finn. Today we made this Kiwi Christmas Tree and Finn absolutely loved it. Sliced kiwi made up the tree and it was topped with a watermelon star.
During Christmas time it can be very hard to avoid all the Christmas junk food, that is why it is important to me to try and make healthy food fun for kids. I’m not normally a “fun food” mum but Finn has absolutely loved his festive snacks. I have been amazed at how delighted he is with basically the same snack he usually receives, just served in a different way.
Kiwi fruits are a great source of folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E. They are a good source of fibre, helping to keep the digestion systems running well. To read more about the health benefits of Kiwis and other foods check out this page Super Kids Nutrition
