Disney PIXAR’s “The Good Dinosaur” – A Healthy Lunch and Snack Idea

Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur Snack Tray

It can be difficult to get your kids to eat their veggies, but maybe fashioning them into something fun can do the trick. I came up with this easy peasy snack tray from Disney and Pixar’s newest animated feature film “The Good Dinosaur” (Opening November 25th) and everything about it is good for your little one.

This snack tray would be perfect with a side of ranch dressing to dip all the veggies into and it’s based on an image of the poster for the movie.
