Now that I have a little that can actually partake in the holiday cheese plate I found myself being super conscious of what I was putting on it (no nuts this year!). Instead, I opted for a ton of fruit and veggies and notoriously kid friendly cheeses, like cheddar cut into fun shapes and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Why the Parm-Reg? It’s packed with the calcium that littles need. And while Zelda loves butter crackers, I wanted to do something a little different, and when I found this cookie stamp I had an epiphany — mini toasts from the North Pole with jam! What’s your littles favorite holiday appetizer?
