Need snack board ideas for your next party or meal at home? We’ve got you covered with the easiest kid-friendly charcuterie board ideas.
What is a charcuterie board?
A charcuterie board is a platter of snacks for people to share that usually consists of a variety of cured meats, cheeses, crackers, fruit and nuts etc.
That was until themed party and holiday boards started trending and we can’t get enough of how amazing they look, and I bet they taste good too!
Charcuterie boards, aka snack boards, are a fun way to get the whole family involved in sharing food and socialising and are a super simple option for guests to graze on at a party.
How to make a kid-friendly charcuterie board
- Decide on a theme and colour scheme.
- Choose your board or platter. Round, square, rectangle etc.
- Decide if you want sweet or savoury eats or a bit of both.
- Make sure to include easy to eat finger food options for kids that aren’t too messy.
- Create focal points with cute dip dishes and containers. Fill these with small snacks or dips and place them on the board first in a fairly symmetrical pattern. This can be moved around as you go along.
- Create small groups of food items all over the board. Use smaller items to fill any gaps.
- Don’t worry about things looking a little messy, because that’s the fun part.
- There are no set rules and the best part is you get to share and enjoy!
