Hamburgers come in all shapes and sizes, and as we continue our journey through National Hamburger Month, we're getting creative with the patties. Burgers on a bun may make some mouths happy, but once the bread is removed the options are limitless. Turning sliders into a work of art ensures that tots get each of the food groups on their plate in a fun and enticing way.
The slider girl pictured here includes a protein, grains, fruit, vegetables, and dairy. To recreate the lil lady:
- Cover the plate with angel hair pasta to create a face.
- Two sliders will serve as eyes (add ketchup to make it even more realistic).
- Baby carrots can be arranged to make a mouth.
- A centered piece of string cheese can serve as a nose.
- Place baby spinach around the top of the head to make some crazy hair.
- Carefully arrange blueberries around the base of her face for a beautiful necklace.
