This is such a fun and easy snack to make with the kids! Best of all, it's yummy and healthy, too!

You can use any fruits for the toppings on your watermelon pizza, even what you have on hand will do.


For your skeptical kiddos (AKA picky eaters), a variety of fruit toppings allows them to make bright and colorful creations of their choice which can add to their willingness to join in.


For the sensory sensitive kid chefs, just be sure to have a wet cloth beside them so they can wipe off the 'stickies' as they need to, while still having fun in the kitchen.

Watermelon Pizza

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 teaspoon honey (can use agave or maple syrup)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla extract (optional)

2 large round slices of watermelon (each sliced about 1 inch thick, cut from the center of the watermelon)

About 1/2 cup of each of fresh fruits (e.g. strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, kiwi...whatever you like! Using 3 or 4 different color fruit toppings makes a nice 'rainbow' pizza.

Optional toppings: Shaved coconut, fresh mint leaves

Directions:

1. Combine the yogurt, honey, and vanilla in a small bowl.

2. Spread 1/4 cup of the yogurt mixture on each of the 2 watermelon slices. Cut each of the watermelon slices into 8 pieces. Then have the kids add their own fruit topping combinations onto each slice.


When it comes to brave tasting, kids can choose which of the fruits they might want to try. This is a great food fun activity to do when you have an adventurous eater AND a picky eater so they can inspire each other with their creations (and maybe even some brave tasting).
