Finding Nemo is one of Disney’s most beloved movies. Even my two year old, who is scared of some of the other Disney movies at her age, likes Finding Nemo (although she does hold her sister’s hand during the shark part when we watch it at home). We love all of the characters, including Dory, Marlin, Squirt, Crush, Mr. Ray, and, of course, Nemo.
Finding Nemo Snack
2 baby carrots
1 green grape
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1 T of yogurt (plain, Greek, etc.)
1 raisin or currant
Slice a baby carrot in half lengthwise, and lay each half on the plate. This will be Marlin and Nemo’s bodies. Take another baby carrot, slice in half lengthwise, and slice two triangles out of one of the halves. Place these triangles onto the back of each body for tails. Next, spoon a tablespoon of yogurt (I love to use plain Greek yogurt here, it’s got the most protein, and it’s actually better that it’s not sweetened, because it’s being served atop a carrot!). Snip a tiny corner off of the bag, and pipe yogurt onto the fish’s bodies, making two stripes on the body, one on the tail, then an eye and a smile for each fish. Finish the look by using the remainder of the yogurt to pipe little waves across the top of the plate to look like the fish are under water.
Slice a green grape in half lengthwise. Next, slice each half into thin sections, and arrange on the plate to look like sea plants. So simple, yet so adorable!
