How to Make Watermelon Pizza!

healthy ideas for food making food fun for children kids toddlers

Hey and welcome to me and b! One thing I find which really helps little b try new things is to pretend they are familiar things. Have you tried that with your little one? Let me explain…

For example, “mini sausages” are actually Quorn steak strips. “Bread rolls” are actually dumplings. Sneaky or what ey.

Although b loves his fruit, I thought I would try something different – so here we have a watermelon pizza!

All you need is a whole watermelon and whatever fruit you want to pop on top. Here I used grapes and blueberries. I also used some coconut for “cheese”. Very quick and easy but lots of fun for the little ones. And this makes the perfect snack for long, summer days.

It’s also nice to let the little ones top their own pizzas with fruit too 🙂 This usually results in B just eating all the fruit!

You could also try this with large slices of pineapple or other types of melon. Ultimately, the only thing stopping you is your imagination! For more fun fruit ideas, check out some simple tricks here which don’t take long to put together. My favourite fruity fun snacks are the fruity fish and chips and the watermelon cooked breakfast – it actually makes food prep fun too haha.

  1. […] Watermelon PizzaDon’t you just love a good cooked breaky?! Since moving, I love cooking up some bacon, beans, mushrooms and tomatoes on a weekend morning. We actually have an extractor fan that works now haha! I made little b a cooked breakfast with a difference this weekend though! The difference being, nothing was cooked! We had watermelon “bacon”, yogurt and banana “eggs” and some mini toast, with Pooh Bear’s honey 🙂 B is obsessed with Winnie the Pooh at the mo hehe! If I tell him the honey belongs to Pooh, he eats it. Job done. […]

  2. […] I enjoy trying to make food fun for my little boy though. I’m lucky because he eats well (mostly) and he loves fruit. One thing I try to do is mix things up a bit for him and give him some of variety. One way of doing this is to turn fruit and veg into imitation junk food. Here I use rice cakes as the base for some fruity pizzas. A bit like these watermelon pizzas. […]
