We have made some Gingerbread Man Winners out of watermelon, apple, blueberries & gingerbread men. It is so simple to make & it just makes snack times a little bit more fun for your little ones.
Recipe: Gingerbread Man Winners
3 rectangle pieces of watermelon – 1 big, 2 smaller
½ slice orange
1 slice apple cut into 6 small triangles, 6 tiny rectangles and the number 1 shape
3 Organix mini gingerbread men
1 ½ blueberries – halved
How to make them:
1. Place the watermelon pieces in a row at the bottom of the plate to form a winner’s podium, with the
biggest piece in the middle.
2. Place the orange slice at the top of the plate for the sun. Add the apple triangles for sun rays.
3. Stand the 3 gingerbread men on the podium. Arrange the tiny rectangles of apple as medal
straps and top each with half of a blueberry for the medal.
4. Finish with the apple number one on the central piece of watermelon.
Alyssia loved eating the blueberry & apple medal. As a child my mum would always make smiley/funny faces out of our food and it always made me smile, so I have started to do the same for Alyssia. Now that she is 18 months old her imagination is wild & she loves exploring her way around new things. Alyssia loves getting involved in the kitchen & now I feel like she is at the right age to be able to help making her own snacks for example putting the blueberries on top of the gingerbread men. I buy organix products near enough every week, Alyssia absolutely loves them & they’re dairyfree – winning! You can buy the gingerbread men here.
