THE ULTIMATE SNACK TRAY IDEAS

(For Lunch or Dinner)

Snack platter, charcuterie board, muffin tin snack tray, snacky lunch, snack dinner, or whatever you want to call it, the idea is the same - it's a clean-out-the-fridge or pantry meal that requires very minimal prep work and no cooking. Simply changing the way you plate your child's food can invite more fun and encourage your perhaps fussy or picky eater to try a greater variety of foods without much effort on your part!
