Kids Charcuterie Board

Turn all your kids’ favorite snacks into a kids charcuterie board pretty enough even grown-ups will want to eat it!

We grown-ups love our charcuterie boards! But stinky blue cheese, spicy meats, and Kalamata olives aren’t always at the top of every toddler’s list of favorite foods.

So I built a kids charcuterie board, modeled after the popular Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board from a few years back, that is packed with my children’s favorite foods! 

This board would be great for a family-friendly party or a special occasion snack.

I started the planning process by making a list of all the kid-friendly foods I could think of, making sure to include a variety of food categories and flavors: sweet, salty, crunchy, fresh, dried, dippy. 

Some kids love cheese and some kids love cucumbers, and there is a little bit of everything involved! Most of the ingredients I would consider healthy. I added the chocolatey trail mix and animal crackers to lure them in! Super fun : ) 

Kids love animal crackers, but you could use any of the alphabet-shaped cookies too! 

I picked up a few extra fresh ingredients from the store, but most of them came directly from our pantry. Snacks are more fun when presented in colorful ways, amiright?

How To Make A Kids Charcuterie Board

Step one: procure ingredients

I shopped at stores and my pantry for a mix. I focused on fresh fruits and vegetables, added some proteins and whole grain crackers, and filled in the cracks with trail mix, raisins, and Goldfish!
