I’ve had the best time searching for healthy and fun Thanksgiving turkey ideas to entertain my girls and our guests on Thanksgiving. While many of the “turkey” fun foods that I found revolve around sweets, there were many healthier variations that were equally as cute and tasty.

I literally had to stop myself at 21 Thanksgiving turkey ideas because if I had kept looking I would have racked up at least a dozen more. The recipes and suggestions you’ll find below are what I think are the most doable and delicious for both children and their parents.

Thanksgiving just got cuter with these 21 fun and healthy turkey ideas for kids. #funfoodClick To Tweet

I’ve broken the recipes into categories for breakfast, lunch, appetizers, and desserts/snacks but many of them could easily be used for other occasions. I love the Pluckable Veggie Turkeys for a kid-friendly Thanksgiving appetizer as well as the Turkey Vegetable Tray for a more sophisticated “grown up” party. I hope you get creative and have a great time with these fun Thanksgiving turkey ideas. If you see or make others, definitely let me know if the comments and I’ll add on to this post and include it on my Pinterest board.

Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble!
