Tempt a picky eater with our happy-face veggie bagel. Spread one half of a plain bagel with cream cheese. Trim a piece of the other half into a hat as shown and press it in place. Use broccoli florets to embellish the hat. Press black olives and grape tomato halves in place for the eyes and cheeks. Finish with a chive or scallion mouth and a bell pepper scarf.
A Healthy Gingerbread House
Give your traditional gingerbread house an extreme makeover by swapping the candy for more wholesome ingredients. To make the house, trim graham cracker walls and a roof with a serrated knife, then join them with peanut butter. (To pipe it, spoon several tablespoons of peanut butter into a plastic bag and snip off a corner.) Decorate the house with healthy snacks, such as cereal, nuts, and dried fruit, attached with more peanut butter. Can't use nut products? Substitute cream cheese for a binder.
