Recipe: Ladybugs on a Log

When neighbor kids come over or you have to put together a healthy snack for a group of kids it’s always a good idea to avoid nuts. Nut allergies are fairly common and very dangerous.

I always had ants on a log after school (celery with peanut butter and raisins) and it was my favorite. This is kind of like that but with no nuts and a more fruity taste. It’s really great and it’ll be a hit for sure!


10 stalks of celery, cut into 2-3 pieces each
Strawberry cream cheese
Dried cranberries (“Craisins”)


1. Fill the inner part fo the celery so that it’s full. Use a butter knife to make it even with the top.
2. Add 4-5 cranberries in a row to the cream cheese. These are the ladybugs.
