Charcuterie Board That Kids Love

A Kids Charcuterie Board is perfect for after school snacking, or movie nights at home! This grazing platter is packed with everything your kids love!

This kids Charcuterie Board is perfect for snacking! It’s fun way to get kids to eat their veggies, and for adults to snack on too! Perfect for picky eaters! The best part about this toddler-friendly charcuterie board is that you can mix and match your favorite snacks and kid-friendly foods ! It’s completely customizable to each kid! You can even get them involved and use smaller boards to make their own snack board! 

What should I include on a charcuterie board for kids?

Cheese

Include one to two cheese items that kids will love! Cheddar cheese is always a popular choice, but swiss or colby jack are great too! I bought a mixed cheese party tray from my local grocery store and cut the cheese slices into stars using these cutters for a fun and festive display. You can cut them into whatever fun shapes your little one is in to! Fun foods will always make eating healthy easier!

Protein

Make sure to include two or three sources of protein on this platter. My two year old loves peanut butter sandwiches on raisin toast, so I used a heart shaped cutter to cut them into heart shapes and included them on this easy kid-friendly charcuterie board. For some added crunch, I included some Lentil Tomato Basil Harvest Snaps, which has 5 grams of protein per serving.

Fresh Fruit

Berries and apples are favorites here at the Dinner Fairy household, and perfect for snacking! Clementines, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and grapes are included on this kids charcuterie board, but feel free to add watermelon slices, peaches, or other seasonal fruit! Slice the apples thinly before adding to the board.

Fresh vegetables

Choose one to two small veggies that are perfect for little toddler’s little hands. Think cherry tomatoes, mini cucumber rounds, baby carrots, and mini bell pepper slices!

Crackers or chips

A kid favorite! Goldfish and animal crackers are very popular around here, along with healthier crackers like Triscuits, Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers, or Bitsy’s brainfood smart crackers. Include 2-3 crackers on this snack board.

Dips and Sauces

Include one or two sauces or dips in small ramekins or small bowls right on the board. My sons loves peanut butter spread on his apples, but you could also include a healthy fruit dip like my cookie butter dip or monster cookie dough dip! Include some ranch for the veggies or some whipped feta dip!

Sweets

Finally, some sweeter items as a treat for the younger kids! We love trail mix (put this in a small bowl), raisins, mini vanilla wafer cookies and Annie’s Organic Bunny cookies. They come in a few different flavors, birthday cake is our favorite!
