Serving a snack platter for lunch (or even dinner) is a great way to serve up a variety of foods and making it fun for your toddler at the same time. Not only does it make them feel in control of their own meal because they are truly able to grab what they want, giving them the power of choice, it also makes it more fun for them as well.
By adding a selection of different colours/shapes/textures of vegetables, fruit and snacks, it adds to the overall look and appeal of the snack platter.
Since our trays come with lids, you can always prep your trays in advance, and refrigerate them for later on in the day.
Talk about convenience!
Never leave your child unattended when serving finger foods (or any other chunky food for that matter). Self-feeding is an exciting developmental milestone for both mom and child, but serving the wrong size or texture of food can put your little one at risk of choking.
Ideal finger foods are those that your child can easily pick up and easily mash between the gums. To prevent allergic reactions it should ideally be foods that your child has already had in purée form.
This snack platter was served to a child 12M+.
