How to Make a Back-to-School Food Board!

It's back-to-school and while this doesn't look like any previous year, there are things we can do to celebrate our kids and help them usher in this new (and different) school year. It's no secret that my family loves food boards, but we have never made one for school, until now! This is perfect for after school when your kids get home, for lunch if they are learning from home, or even as a fun family dinner to talk about what everyone learned during the week. We ate this board for dinner and my whole family devoured it!

The brilliant thing about a food board is that you can mix together different types of food to make everyone happy! For this back-to-school food board I used veggies, such as Dandy Radishes for the pencils, hearts, and stars, fruit for the flowers, meat, cheese, dips, and even alphabet cookies for a dessert.

I love Dandy Radishes because they are crisp, crunchy, and so versatile. They can be eaten right out of the bag, are perfect for dipping, and can help create a ton of different shapes. I used them for the erasers and tips of the pencils, the little stars (because our kids are all-stars, right?), and the tiny hearts (because we all love our familes). I even used a few pieces to top off the dips!
