Watermelon Pizza is the perfect fun snack to serve your little ones. It is refreshing, healthy, quick to prepare and so delicious.
This is more of an idea than a recipe but I think ideas like this watermelon pizza is perfect for parents. Often food is more interesting to kids if it is simply presented in a different way. Transforming a simple slice of melon into a fun snack made Finn’s day!
Watermelon pizza is so simple to make. Start with the pizza base (a slice of watermelon) and cut it into pizza wedges. Next add the pizza topping (fruit of your choice) to the top of each slice. Finish with the cheese (a sprinkle of shredded coconut.) Finally, enjoy but just remember to leave some for the kids!
This is a great snack to get gets involved in the kitchen, they can help prepare the topping and then can decorate their own watermelon pizza. I love interactive food activities like this. I strongly believe that, the more kids are involved with every aspect of their food from meal planning, grocery shopping and food preparation, the more acceptable to new foods they will be.
