Kids will love the taste and presentation of this new twist on a kid classic. They’ll get a boost of nutrition too! Grapes in a Canoe provide an excellent source of vitamin K and good source of manganese.

Ingredients

  • 4 large celery stalks
  • 8 teaspoon peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup red grapes
  • 32 thin pretzel sticks, preferably whole wheat

Preparation

Step 1:

  • Make a slice or two on the spine of each piece of celery, if necessary, so they stay upright on a plate. Spread 2 teaspoons peanut butter or almond butter into each celery stalk. Place the grapes in a row inside the celery, pressing them lightly into the nut butter. Position 8 pretzel sticks along the side each the celery “canoe” to look like oars for the grape “rowers.”
