Cute food ideas for kids don't have to be extravagant or time consuming. This mama sure doesn't have time for that! Sometimes (and I don't mean daily...I'm talking about occasionally. Most days, are slap-a-peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich-on-a-plate days.) A sweet surprise on the lunch plate can bring a smile to your child's face and make a gloomy day look a little brighter. These flower themed healthy snacks are fun and super easy. I love to put a plate like these on the table for snack time or right in the middle of lunch. The healthy treat makes the kids cheer!

Mandarin orange flower- Peel an orange and open one end. Add celery for a stem.
Orange with flair- Add a grape tomato to the center of your orange to add a little color. Other fruits could also be arranged into a flower shape: apple, pear, and banana slices would work.
Dried cranberry mini flowers- Arrange cranberries (or raisins) into petal shapes. Add chickpeas for a center to each flower.
Tulip cucumbers- Cut a jagged line into cucumber slices. Add a piece of the peel for stems for each flower.
Flower art- Get the kids involved in this one! Provide carrots, broccoli, red peppers, grape tomatoes and create a flower design as a family. Enjoy!
