Cracker Stackers

Nut allergy blurb goes here

Note: This snack is a good party idea. How many food groups can you get on one cracker?

What you need:

  • A variety of whole-grain crackers, such as whole-wheat and graham
  • Thinly sliced fruit, such as banana, kiwi, strawberry, pear, and apple
  • Thinly sliced vegetables, such as tomato, cucumber, and zucchini
  • Thinly sliced or shredded cheese
  • Thinly sliced lean deli turkey or chicken
  • Spreads, such as cream cheese, salsa, hummus, 100% fruit spreads, and peanut butter

Equipment and supplies:

  • Knives for spreading
  • Plates

What to do:

  1. Have an adult cut the fruit, veggies, and other toppings into cracker-size slices.
  2. Place the crackers, toppings, and spreads in small bowls or plates.
  3. Everybody gets to build their own cracker stackers, combining the toppings and spreads on the crackers. Stumped for combinations? Try cream cheese and strawberry, cheddar cheese and pear, and deli chicken with cucumber.
