Step 3. On the other side between the two sauce dishes, add the pigs in a blanket. You should just have space in the center of the charcuterie board now.

What Else Can You Put On A Kids Charcuterie Board?

Need more food ideas for kids? You may want to include some of these…

  • Deli meats: For a simple idea that kids love, you can roll thinly sliced cured meats like ham, turkey, or roast beef and add them to your snack board 
  • Cheese: A variety of cheddar cheese cubes or mozzarella sticks make a great addition. You can even add cheese slices, then use a cookie cutter to cut them into fun shapes like stars or circles.  
  • Crackers: We used colorful Goldfish, but you can add club crackers or any kind of crispy, buttery crackers your kids enjoy. You could even add some animal crackers.
  • Fresh veggies: Adding a section of baby carrots, cucumber slices, or cherry tomatoes is also a fun way to get kids to eat their veggies.
  • Dips and sauces: You can swap out either the ketchup or the BBQ sauce with other dipping sauces like honey mustard or this cool Sour Cream Dip. The different flavors will give everyone great options to choose from.  
  • Fresh fruit: Add a section for your kid’s favorite fruits. It’s the perfect way to add healthy snacks to the board.
  • Other little bites: You can add any of your kiddo’s favorite things. Chicken nuggets, fish sticks and even soft pretzel bites are always a good option for hungry kids.

Can You Make This Charcuterie Board in Advance?

Most of the foods on this board are meant to be served warm. If you’re looking for a short cut, you can cook the fries, pizza rolls and pigs in a blanket a few hours ahead of time then just throw them in the oven or air fry to heat them back up.
