Posted August 29, 2013

Feel like building a little fun into after-school routines? Let your Lil’ Chef help you construct these nutritious scooter snacks to rev up their 
homework efforts or tide them over 'til suppertime!

Ingredients:

• 8 slices zucchini (1/4 inch thick)
• 6 pretzel sticks, divided
• 2 pieces string cheese
• 2 pretzel rods, cut into 3 inch pieces
• 2 tablespoons spreadable garden vegetable cream cheese
• 4 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
• 2 olives

Directions:

For each of four axles, thread two zucchini slices through a pretzel stick, leaving a 1-inch space in the center. For each scooter, position string cheese between two axles.

Attach a pretzel rod with cream cheese to each scooter; top each with a pretzel stick for handlebars. Add tomato hubcaps and olive headlights and taillights with cream cheese.

Yield: 2 scooters.

    Expensive, too much handling required, and a very short shelf life. But cute...:)
