With back-to-school in full swing, assembling a charcuterie board is a fun and easy way to have a delicious and healthy after-school snack available for your little ones without putting too much stress on your shoulders. Moreover, a charcuterie board is a great way to introduce new flavors and textures to your kids. You can make your own or purchase a pre-made one at the store. The key components are thinly sliced meats, olives, cheeses, bread, and fruit. This not only provides an opportunity for you to teach your children about different food groups but also expose them to new tastes too!
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite picks to help you create your own. Plus, we’ve included a link to a recipe that you can make at home.
- Cheese: Pita chips are great for dipping into soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert. You could also cut up apples or pears to snack on as well!
- Meats: Ham and turkey slices are great for kids who want something savory and salty.
- Crackers: The classic saltines or Ritz Crackers always go well with any kind of cheese.
