Sunflower Sandwich Snackers

These whimsical sunflowers are always a huge hit! What my kids don’t know is that each flower contains Vegetables, Dairy, Whole Grain AND a complete serving of Fruit. They’re SO easy and I get bonus points w/ the kids for serving “fun food”. :)
Sunflower Sandwich Snackers
makes 1
Ingredients:
1/4 c. California raisins
2 T. reduced fat cream cheese
1 slice Orowheat sandwich thin (or other brand)
1 ounce sliced cheese
1/3 of a medium green pepper

Directions:
Slice cheese into triangles. The best way is to slice it in half one way, then in half the other. Then, slice each square into triangles (see below)
Place sandwich thin on plate and spread with cream cheese. Sprinkle raisins on top and set on plate. Slice green pepper into strips. Spread on plate too look like a flower "stem" and "grass". Arrange cheese trianges around sandwich thin and serve.

Disclosure: We created this fun sandwich snack for the California Raisins "Let's Re-Do Lunch" contest. You can go here to join in on the fun! I was not compensated in any way for this post. You can learn more about the fabulous Meal Makeover Moms here.
