Healthy Fun: Build a Better Munchie

Build a Better Munchie

Replace ho-hum snacks with fun to eat (and make) treats like this one from "Bean Appetit: Hip and Healthy Ways to Have Fun With Food," by Shannon Payette Seip and Kelly Parthen.


  • Green grapes
  • Red grapes
  • Cheddar cheese slice
  • Mini-pretzel sticks
  • Carrot pieces (thinly sliced)


To make your own edible campfire, arrange several grape halves in a circle.

Tear or snip a slice of Cheddar into fl ame shapes, then stand them, along with a few thinly sliced carrot pieces, inside the grape circle.

Surround the flames with broken mini pretzel-stick logs.
