Do you have picky eaters? I have one picky eater and one problem feeder with sensory processing disorder. Through C’s feeding therapy, I’ve been learning so much about making food look fun. Kids are just like adults that way – if we see something visually appealing, we’re more likely to eat it. If I can incorporate peanut butter and chocolate into a creative snack, that’s even better! I can spread new Reese’s Spreads, available at Walmart, on just about anything to make #AnySnackPerfect. This product was on demo at my local Walmart and it tasted delicious!
The kids and I decided to make caterpillars and snails. We needed apples, celery, Reese’s Spreads, chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows. Getting your picky eater’s help in the kitchen can increase their interest in eating the finished product. C had recently made a “spider” in feeding therapy and couldn’t wait to make more creatures!
Once I spread the Reese’s Spreads on celery sticks, C enjoyed lining up miniature marshmallows on top for the caterpillar’s “fur.” We added chocolate chips as eyes!
We made snails, too, because C’s caterpillars needed friends! We filled some more celery sticks with Reese’s Spreads. I sliced an apple and had C choose which slices he wanted to use. He helped me scoop Reese’s Spreads into a bag to use as piping to create the swirl on the snail shell. We placed the apple slice in the celery stick. C asked, “Mommy, can I do it?” He carefully added the snail’s chocolate chip eyes.
While C excitedly talked about his snail and caterpillar family, Baby Jo was simply excited that there was food to eat! That girl is always hungry. To her credit, she waited patiently for C’s daddy snail and mommy snail to chat up the baby caterpillar.
Then she grabbed an apple slice and started her little feast! I think this creative snack has Baby Jo’s seal of approval. She only left some celery in her wake!
From apples and celery to toast and waffles, this new spread provides the distinct taste of Reese’s. What will you flavor with new Reese’s Spreads?
