Snacking With Joy: Pumpkin Patch Snack

Pumpkin patch snack using whole foods

Feeding my family allergy-free whole foods inspired these festive Halloween snacks that your kids will love to make and eat. My girls call it delicious and fun. I call it Snacking with Joy. Eating crackers and cheese has never been so fun!

Ingredients
Mini Babybel cheddar rounds
Whole grain & seed crackers
Swiss cheese
Fresh oregano

Directions
Cut faces into red wax covering on cheddar rounds and remove remaining wax (do not eat wax faces).
Place on top of crackers.
Use cookie cutter to make moon and stars with Swiss cheese. Arrange on plate.
Garnish with fresh oregano or favorite green herb.
Enjoy your friendly Pumpkin Patch Snack.

Please note: All cutting should be done by an adult.
