Apple Face Food Craft

Ingredients

  • Apple
  • Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese
  • Green bean
  • Raisins
  • Sliced cheese

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Place the raisins into the eye sockets.
  • Cut the green bean in half and insert it into the nose hold.
  • Cut a triangle shape out of the cheese slice and insert it into the mouth area.
  • Use a skewer to poke holes around the top of the apple, above the eyes.
  • 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.
