Easy Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board

We know back to school can be a crazy time and Safeway is here to help. From quick snacks that help kiddos get out the door on time to showstopper snack creations like this kid-friendly charcuterie board, O Organics® makes innovative snacking possible, no matter how busy your schedule.

I mean just look at all these delicious O Organics® snack options:

cheese sticks (in more interesting flavors than mozzarella)

snap peas

grape tomatoes

teriyaki beef jerky

hummus + pita crackers

hard boiled eggs

yogurt

trail mix

nuts

their new Sailor's loot (which you are going to LOVE)

Any of these are great as snacks on their own or more collectively on a fabulous kid-friendly charcuterie board. You choose. Either way, you and your kiddos win!

I love anchoring my snack boards (for kids or adults!) with at least 2 dips. In this case, I used the O Organics® Roasted Garlic Hummus and then I created a new one that is super kid-friendly and perfect for dipping fruit and the Vanilla Animal Cookies in: PB&J DIP!

It's super simple and oh so delicious, with just 2 ingredients:

  • O Organics® Strawberry Yogurt
  • Chunky Peanut Butter

I told you it was easy!! This creamy, sweet, salty, nutty deliciousness comes together in about 2.4 seconds.

This snack board is perfect as an after school snack with your own kiddos + any friends that come over, or for a larger gathering like a birthday party or holiday get-together! And kids can feel free to mix and match and pick their favorite items --- and you'll feel good that you're serving them something nutritious and organic.

Watch this stop motion video to see how easy it is to create!

Here's some easy swaps to make your charcuterie board more kid-friendly:

+ Instead of dry-cured meats like salami and prosciutto, SWAP in organic ham and turkey slices + beef jerky.

+ Insetad of more grown up cheese wedges with strong flavors, SWAP in O Organics® Sharp White Cheddar and Colby Jack Cheese Sticks. 

+ Instead of a mustard based dip, SWAP in the super fun PB&J Dip. 

+ Instead of seedy crackers, SWAP in O Organics® Sailor's Loot + pita crisps.

I love that the O Organics® brand has sooooooooooo many different options and that their packaging is easy to spot on the shelves ---> just look for the white packaging with the pretty bright blue and the O logo! And it's totally affordable. Usually USDA certified organic and affordable don't go in the same sentence, but at Safeway they do!
