Healthy Kids-Inspired Winter Reindeer Snacks

Reindeer celery snack

We couldn’t resist pulling this cute snack/craft out of the archives for this week! 

These adorable reindeer are fun for kids of all ages — yes, we’re using the term “kid” loosely — to make. Take a break from gingerbread making and cookie decorating to try this healthy holiday snack that’s almost too cute to eat!


  • Celery
  • Peanut Butter
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Pretzel snacks
  • Edible googly eyes (or see below)


  • Break the pretzels in half for the reindeer antlers (this part can be tricky: practice breaking a few until you get the right shape!)
  • Fresh celery for the body, cut into 3- to 4-inch sticks
  • Spread the peanut butter so that it fills the inside of celery stick (wipe the sides if it starts to drip)
  • Crown your reindeer with pretzel antlers, attach edible eyes, and add a fresh raspberry for the nose!

More ideas:

  • Nutella, hummus, or your favorite nut-free butter
  • Can’t find edible googly eyes? Chocolate chips, raisins, or pomegranate seeds will work!
