10 Fun Food Dishes, Perfect to Add to the Thanksgiving Table
Between the green bean casserole and the sweet potato pie, Thanksgiving can offer a lot of foods that seem well, very grown up to a little one, especially as they near the age of 18 months – 2 years old and start getting more selective in their food choices. So I’ve rounded up 10 fun and cute ideas that are both nutritious and indulgent and oh-so-kid-friendly. While we as parents always want to strive to get our little ones to eat the simple and nutritious foods we set before them, on special holidays it’s totally fun and acceptable to pull out the stops and show them just how fun food can be. Read on to see some spectacular kid dishes to add to your Thanksgiving feast.
Turkey Challah Bread

Turkey Chocolate Fondue
I love it when people get creative with the use of fruits and vegetables to recreate the perfect Thanksgiving turkey, and this is no exception. While this turkey was assembled as the perfect dippers for chocolate fondue, it’s so cute all on its own it makes for the perfect nutritious appetizer to set out for the little ones to munch on before the big feast.

While these may be a little too sweet for my liking, and for my 14 month old, I love the creative use of everyone’s favorite cookie and candies to recreate the perfect little turkeys.
