Bonfire night

Remember remember the 5th of November!

How about some fruit fireworks and bonfires to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night this year?



  • pear
  • mandarin
  • strawberries
  • red apple
  • long-thread desiccated coconut
  • pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • sunflower seeds

I used the fruit and seeds I had on hand so do the same to make the plate fun and vibrant.


Step 1 Cut some pear into strips and ‘build’ a bonfire.

Step 2 Slice a mandarin segment into flames.

Step 3 Add some strawberry star fireworks.

Step 4 Then give them some apple rocket tails.

Step 5 Cut an apple pinwheel firework.

Step 6 Use seeds to make delicate, flower-shaped fireworks.

Step 7 Add coconut to give the fireworks sparkle and create the explosions.

The Art of Nutrition is a popular place to find
inspiration for fun, healthy, creative food for kids

“how to present healthy food creatively so it is
delicious looking and impulse-creating, so kids
can’t wait to tackle the plate”. The focus is fruit, vegetables and whole
grains. The plates are designed to be made by the average time-poor
parent, in the average kitchen, using readily available ingredients and
working on a budget.
