It can be really hard at times to get the kids to eat healthy and getting their five a day in fruit and veg is not always the easiest. In fact, we sometimes have to be creative and think outside the box. Today on The Inspiration Edit I am sharing this fantastic flower garden fruit cup idea. I know the kids will love it and it’s a fun activity to make.

Ingredients For This Healthy Snack Idea
- Small clear cups
- Red grapes
- Green grapes
- Small flower-shaped cookie cutter
How To Make These Flower Pots
Layer green and red grapes in small clear plastic cups.
Cut cantaloupe into slices about ¼ to ½ an inch thick.
Cut the seeds out of the middle of the cantaloupe slices.
Using a small flower-shaped cookie cutter, cut flower shapes out of the slices of cantaloupe.
Use a knife to create ¼ to ½ inch thick slices out of the watermelon.
Use the same flower-shaped cookie cutter to cut flower shapes out of the watermelon slices.
Place 3 cantaloupe or watermelon flowers on top of three toothpicks, and stick them into the grapes in each fruit cup to create a flower garden.
Supervise children when serving your snacks, toothpicks should be removed before allowing small children to eat the snack.
