Recipe: Starry Bites

Serve your little one a celestial snack in 4 easy steps. Made of star-shaped fruit and fluffy yogurt clouds for a well-balanced bite. 



Serving Size: Up to you!  (This is a snack-style recipe, so serving size is based on how much you want to make) 

Time: 5 Minutes

Here's what you'll need...


  • Apple

  • Any other yellow fruit of choice: melon, pineapple, mango, and banana work great

  • Plain or vanilla greek yogurt


  • Small star or other fun cookie cutter

  • Regular spoon and knife for prep

  • Little plate and spoon


  1. Cut apple or other chosen fruit into even slices that will be easy to stamp with a cookie cutter. Use cookie cutter to cut small stars out of your fruit slices.

  2. Take the greek yogurt and create 3 large dollops for the clouds. 

  3. Using a spoon, slowly shape your clouds — think fluffy and formed.

  4. Add your stars and enjoy!
