Apple Face Food Craft
Ingredients
  • Apple
  • Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese
  • Green bean
  • Raisins
  • Sliced cheese
Instructions
  1. Using a paring knife, cut two holes for the raisin eyes, a nose big enough to fit the end of a string bean, and a triangle shape for the mouth.
  2. Place the raisins into the eye sockets.
  3. Cut the green bean in half and insert it into the nose hold.
  4. Cut a triangle shape out of the cheese slice and insert it into the mouth area.
  5. Use a skewer to poke holes around the top of the apple, above the eyes.
  6. Pull off string cheese pieces and squish the end into the skewer holes to serve as hair.

String cheese is one of our go-to snacks for the boys. On days when they're being picky, a stick of cheese can always be counted on to get some nutrition into their bellies.

I like to use their favorite foods to make cute bentos that keep them engaged in mealtime. This apple face whipped up in about five minutes with some snacktime favorites I found in the fridge.

Saputo Cheese USA, Inc asked me to make a recipe with their Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese and I thought of this apple face after contemplating the nickname of those cheese sticks. Cheesehead. Head of cheese. Tiny head…made with cheese.

Sometimes I seriously question the way my brain works.

Nate said I should have used a non-organic apple so it would look a little more plump and…well…happier. I think my smallish organic pick lends well to the apple face vibe I was going for. She looks a little witchy, don't you think?

String cheese hair is pretty much the best idea I've ever had! The kids asked why her strands were sparse and I said it's because she's going bald like their great grandpa, GG Pa.
