Vegetables Cars

Summertime is for vacations and road trips; a time when families hit the road and experience the world together. What better way to celebrate family vacations than with healthy snacks in the shape of cars? Made with fresh fruits and veggies, these car cuties are super versatile and easy to switch up. Don’t like apples? Use orange slices! Can’t have grapes? Try cheese for the wheels! Also feel free to change up the filling inside the celery cars with whatever your kids prefer most. You can try your favorite nut butter, hummus, or even a hazelnut chocolate spread!
