Ladybug Fruit Snack Recipe

Jul 27, 2015

These adorable little ladybugs are a nutritious snack for kids. They take minutes to put together and your kids will be begging for more—and since they're so healthy, you can happily oblige!

You Will Need:

  • 1 slice of watermelon
  • 6 blueberries
  • 1 black cherry
  • 1 baby carrot
  • vanilla yogurt

Serves one. 

A slice of watermelon, cherries, blueberries, a dish of yogurt and a baby carrot.


1. Lay your slice of watermelon down on a cutting board. Use a round cookie cutter (or the open end of a drinking glass if you don’t have a round cutter) to cut a round piece of watermelon.

2. Using a knife, cut a small triangle in the bottom half of the watermelon slice. Place your circle-shaped watermelon piece on a plate.

3. Grab six fresh blueberries and arrange them on the watermelon slice to look like the dots on a ladybug.

4. Slice two thin strips off your baby carrot. Stick these right at the top of the watermelon slice for antennae. Grab a black cherry and place it down for the ladybug’s head.
