1. Teddy Toast

Whether you’re on team sweet or savoury, these bear toasts are a sure-win come breakfast or snack time.


  1. Spread peanut butter, chocolate, or cream cheese on toasted bread. Add banana slices for the ears and nose. Place two blueberries for eyes, and add one blueberry on top of the banana to complete the nose. Drizzle with honey before serving.

2. Fruity Fish with Blueberry Bubbles

Pucker those lips like a fish and devour these citrusy, nautical treats.

3. Kiwi Apple Turtles

It’s all green everything for this snack, with the big turtles getting green apples as bodies and the kiddos, kiwis.


  1. Lay each kiwi slice and apple round flat, and place a grape at one end of each for the head.
  2. Cut some grapes into quarters for feet, and others into slices for the tail. (TIP: if your animals aren’t staying intact, feel free to hold the fruit together with toothpicks.)
  3. Stick candy eyes onto the grapes with a drop of honey.
