Ingredients

Method

  • 2 x hulled strawberries (green tops reserved)
  • 1 x blackberry

Ingredients

Method

  1. Position the blackberry on the plate to form the butterfly’s body. Slice one strawberry around its circumference to create six round slices.
  2. Take the two biggest rounds of strawberry + position them either side of the bottom of the blackberry to form the bottoms of the butterfly’s wings.
  3. Take two smaller rounds + pop them on top of the larger ones as ‘spots’.
  4. Halve the remaining strawberry along its length + position the halves, cut-side up, pointed end inwards, either side of the blackberry to form the upper parts of the wings.
  5. Place the remaining small slices of strawberry on top of these to give the upper wings spots, too.
  6. Pull two little leaves from the reserved green tops + position them at the top of the blackberry for antennae.

Fun For Little Ones

Talk about the colours, textures + shapes of the different berries with your little one + let them feel the textures with their hands.

Handy Tips

Halve or quarter the blackberry lengthways + halve the strawberry halves again before your baby eats them
