Got leftover rice or couscous? Either serves as the perfect bed for the giraffe.
Antichoking warning: Remember to remove toothpicks and cut up blueberries, grapes, carrots and other food for children under 4. See our Antichoking guide for more information.
Diagonally-cut green beans make a great grassy landscape for the giraffe, and tomatoes stuffed with mixed veggies are a healthy treat. Round out the meal with cut-up fruit for dessert.
- For the giraffe, cut a thin egg omelet on top of a cheese slice into a giraffe shape -- use a cookie cutter or do it freehand (your kid won't judge -- promise!).
- On the side, chicken nuggets (any kind you have on hand) sandwiched with ketchup is a kiddie-fave safe bet; plus, no extra dipping cup needed. Simply slice open the chicken nugget like a book and spread in ketchup (mustard or ranch dressing could work, too).
