Here’s a healthy fruit snack that will be flying down to your child’s tummy in no time!

What You Need

  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 pear (fresh) or slice of pineapple
  • 1 box of raisins

What You Do

  1. Cut Pear in Half
    Choose either a slice of pineapple or a pear for the butterfly’s wings. Cut this in half so that the sides are symmetrical or exactly the same. If you are using a pear, cut out the core from each side once you have cut the fruit in half. Also, you may want to cut some of the curve of the pear off so that the sides will lay flatter on the plate. (You can also used canned pear halves.)
  2. Cut Celery Stick
    Cut the celery stick so that it is a good size for the body. Cut the top of the celery down the middle about one inch and carefully bend each half to the side. These will be the antennae.
  3. Place Celery Between “Wings”
    Place the celery in the middle of the two halves of the fruit. If it does not stay put, use a little peanut butter like glue.
  4. Decorate Wings
    Decorate the wings with raisins. Now eat up and enjoy.

    • Note: You can use any type of fruit that can be cut into two symmetrical sides. Also, try decorating with cran-raisins, cherries or little pieces of strawberries. Use your imagination, and have fun!
