Make veggie faces

Make veggie faces

Sometimes you need to get a bit creative to get kids eating vegetables. Turning veggies into a fun craft activity will take the mealtime angst out of a plate full of vegetables.  You could also make fruit faces for a fun afternoon snack idea.

What you need:

  • 1 cucumber, chopped into circles
  • 1 carrot, cut into thick sticks
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • green beans, topped and tailed, blanched
  • broccoli florets, blanched

Number of players:


Chop and slice your veggies into pieces that will make a face. Present your child with a plate of vegetable shapes and ask them if they can make a face. 

Once they've finished creating their face, you can almost guarantee they will eat something off the plate.
