Eye-Catching Starters

Appetizers
Kids (and adults!) will get a kick out of these festive appetizers. Even the pickiest eater might try the "gift wrap" of red pepper polka dots on a cream cheese snack. Let the kids trim their own pizza tree with spinach, and they may ignore its yuck factor. And who doesn't love a cheese ball shaped like a merry old soul?
  • Christmas Package Cheese Snack
  • O Christmas Treat Pizza
  • Cheese Ball Santa


  • Fun with Bread
    Have kids help shape this classic white bread dough into edible winter icons, and you'll delight even the pickiest eater while filling the house with the aroma of fresh-baked bread.
  • Jolly Snowman Bread
  • Main Dish for Everyone

    Pineapple rings and a brown sugar glaze coat this deceptively easy ham. Make it more tempting to little ones by cutting into cubes before serving -- they may not appreciate the holiday grandeur of the cross-hatched, bone-in presentation.
  • Baked Ham
  • Pleasing Side Dishes

    Mashed Potatoes
    They're really just mashed potatoes, but if you call them "potato clouds," we're sure the kids will ask for second helpings!
  • Mashed Potato Clouds


  • Vegetables
    Bacon and sour cream flavor sweet corn kernels in this yummy side dish, though adamant veggie haters may need you to skip the festive red and green peppers that lend it its holiday theme.
  • Indiana Corn Pudding


  • Flavored with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, this is a simple, sweet veggie dish for little naysayers opposed to anything green.
  • Butternut Squash SoufflĂ©
  • The Best for Last

    Kids who help make and decorate a dessert cute enough to double as a centerpiece will beam with pride throughout the meal. (And they won't mind eating it for dessert later.)
  • Towering Tree Cake
  • Edible Ornament Cupcake
  • Rudolph the Red-nosed Cookie
