A fun cheese snack for toddlers and older kids made with Organix Cheese Stars, fresh cheese and veggies.
I love getting creative with my kids’ food. It really is such a brilliant way to spark their imaginations and get them excited about what’s on their plate.
Both of my children are cheese monsters so I instantly knew that they would love this Man in the Moon Fun Plate made with Organix Cheese Stars, fresh cheese and veggies. All you need is four Organix cheese stars, a couple of slices of cheese to cut a moon and some extra stars, a slice of cucumber, half a cherry tomato and a few cooked carrot batons.
Check out the short video below showing you just how easy it is to try this yourself at home.

- 4 Organix Cheese Stars
- 2 wide slices of cheese
- ½ cherry tomato
- 1 slice cucumber
- 1 carrot
- Peel the carrot and cut into batons about 4cm long. Drizzle with oil and roast in a moderately hot oven for about 10-15 minutes until golden. Using a sharp knife cut 2 slices of cheese from the largest face of the block. Then use a smaller knife to cut a moon shape and 3 star shapes from the cheese.
- Put the Organix cheese stars onto a dark blue plate like stars in the night sky.
- Add the sliced cheese moon and stars.
- Finally, make a man to sit in the moon using the half cherry tomato for his head, the cucumber slice for his body, 2 roasted carrot batons for his legs and another bent into an arm shape.
