Strawberry Rudolph

Merry Christmas! A cute, fruit Rudolph with a huge, shiny nose is bound to be a winner.



  • 2 large green pears (or apples – you could also use honeydew melon)
  • 1 large strawberry
  • blueberries and/or raisins


Step 1 Cut the cheek of a pear for the face.

Step 2 Add a big strawberry nose (I began by thinking raised eyes would look really cool but then changed my mind, so ignore the white bits sticking out!).

Step 3 Give him some blueberry eyes.

Step 4 Cut some ostentatious antlers from the side of the pear.

Step 5 Slice some large ears.

Step 6 Add some décor and a smiley mouth from sliced raisins.

Step 7 He’s ready to fly…

passionate about healthy food for kids. Her blog
The Art of Nutrition is a popular place to find inspiration for fun, healthy, creative food for kids big and small. Judith describes her mission as “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.
