Peachy Parrot


We live in Georgia which is the Peach State and we are almost at the end of our peach season. My wonderful neighbor Sue dropped off a full bag of peaches at my house the other day. She has a blog that I love called The Savvy Sister full of info on healthy living.  My boys have only liked peaches with ice cream in the past and never have wanted them by themselves.  I thought it would be cute to make this Peachy Parrot in hopes they would eat it. They absolutely loved it and said that their new favorite fruit is now a peach!

Peachy Parrot..

2 Peaches
1 Square Marshmallow
2 Chocolate Chips
1 Pretzel Stick

You cut the peaches in half.  Place one half on a plate for the body. Place the other half on the plate for the head. Take another peach half and slice it. Place the slices on the sides for the wings.  Take the other half and cut that half in another half.  Cut thin slices to make the feathers on the bottom.  Take the other half and cut out a beak, top feathers, and feet. Cut the eyes out of the square marshmallow with kitchen scissors.  Place on 2 chocolate chips for the pupils.We place the parrot on a pretzel stick.

We have peaches everywhere here in Georgia.  I have heard that Georgia has actually produced more blueberries in the last couple of years than peaches, but I am sure we will always stay known as the peach state.  We have too many peach streets and peach names so I am sure they wouldn't want to change these to blueberry lane, etc...! Here is the big Georgia peach drop in downtown Atlanta! 


Here are my older boys with one of their neighborhood girlfriends holding their Peachy Parrrot!

  1. I LOVE THIS! What a great idea. My kids always eat the food that they normally would declare they don't like if it's presented in a fun way.

  19. haha - this is hilarious! and what an incredible neighbor to bring you such amazing local fruit! if you ask me, that's how we should be feeding each other - freely, seasonally, locally, and happily.
