Shipshape Snack Recipe

Shipshape Snack

Launch a fleet of edible sailboats for a nutritional snack your kids will sail right through.


  • Red bell pepper
  • Tuna or egg salad
  • Thin pretzel stick
  • Cheese slice
  • Cream cheese (dab)
  • Red pepper flag


Cut a red pepper in half lengthwise (or into quarters for lighter fare) and remove the seeds.

Fill each pepper boat with lunchtime cargo, such as tuna or egg salad. Sink a thin pretzel stick mast into the center of the boat, then add two triangular pieces of cheese for sails.

Use a dab of cream cheese to fix a small red pepper flag to the top of the mast.
