A Healthy Holiday Treat!

With the holiday season fast approaching we know that there will be plenty of sweet treats and homemade baking around! That means it’s the perfect time to try to balance all those goodies out with some delicious and fun healthy treats!  These lovable little ladybugs make a great treat and they’re pretty darn cute :)


What you need: Adapted from Batter Up Kids: Delicious Desserts Makes 12 ladybugs

12 seedless Green or Red Grapes

12 (6- to 8-inch) wooden skewers or  toothpicks

12 whole strawberries

24 mini chocolate chips or dried black currents



Step 1.  Wash your grapes and strawberries

Step 2.  Cut the ends off of the strawberries and cut the grapes in half

Step 3.  Slice off the bottom of the strawberries (this will help them to sit flat on the plate)

Step 4.  Place a grape on a toothpick or wooden skewer, sliding it all the way to the end

Step 5.  Next place the strawberry on the skewer, cut end first, and slide it down to touch the grape

Step 6.  Gently score the top of the strawberry to create the appearance of wings

Step 7.  Finally, carefully push the pointed ends of the chocolate chips (or dried currants) into the strawberry to make the ladybug’s spots.
