Edible Arrangements – Veggie Flower Bouquet

Veggie Flower Bouquet Treat by LivingLocurto.com

I told my kids this was the “Year of Eating Vegetables.” Since they weren’t too thrilled with that idea, I’ve had to be creative with my presentation. REALLY CREATIVE!! ha! This Veggie Bouquet was my latest idea. What do you think?

What you’ll need:

  • Small vases, cups, jars or orange juice glasses.
  • Vegetables your kids like, plus celery for the stems and lettuce for leaves.
  • cream cheese (optional to use as glue)
  • flower shaped cookie cutter (I used one for play dough!) You could try these cool vegetable cutters.
  • toothpicks
  • water

You can also make fruit bouquets for those picky eaters.

Easy to make!

Just fill the cups with the celery, then stick the vegetables on the toothpicks and the toothpicks into the celery stalks.

I used cream cheese as my glue to stick the pieces of carrots onto the cucumber flower. The lettuce leaves are placed around for cuteness.

Great activity for kids!

Serve these cute treats at parties too! My daughter had a blast making these with me. She even took some bites of veggies! YAY! It’s the “Year of the Vegetable” is going pretty good so far:-)

    I just don’t get it about children not liking veggies. My 3 boys always loved everything vegetable, and so does my grandson. Teachers line up in the school lunchroom to watch him chow down on a bag full of mixed vegetables. He loves them all, eats them all with relish, and if you give him a small puddle of ranch dressing, he thinks it’s dessert! I think it is parental trepedation that kids pick up on. If you show the slightest hesitancy about veggies, they’re going to see it. Be bold! If you assume your child will like it and just have it available, eventually they’ll want to try it. Even deny it a few times by useing reverse psychology. But it is OK to not like two or three. Everyone has something they really never learn to like. Chill out, and don’t let your kids near the ones who have been made into picky eaters by over-anxious parents. Remember: if they get hungry enough, they’ll eat it.

  26. Super cute presentation of fresh veggies for kids – http://bit.ly/eUqjUI via @LivingLocurto #mamavation

    • @Kristin,

      So cute. I use this idea for finger salad on a toothpick to get the little and big kids to eat their veggies when the hostess says to bring finger foods to the potluck.
