Children's Cheeseboard

The cheeseboard. A staple part of any Christmas feast.

But there's always a couple on the board that I can't stand! It may be boring but I am a fan of a good solid Cheddar. My husband loves the smelly ones, Mum loves the ones stuffed with fruit and we all love it washed down with a little thimble of port.

But I can never remember having a little cheeseboard for the small guests at the table.

My boys adore cheese so this year, I thought it would be a sweet idea to make the boys a cheeseboard of their own.


You can play it safe or let them taste a few more grown up flavours. I chose to play it safe.

Sammy adored it! They much prefer to pick up grated cheese with their fingers than chunks. 

A simple but effective idea for including the little ones in the Christmas dinner ritual.

I'd love to see what you have been making!
