Makes 3 little ladybirds

Prep time: under 20 mins

Not suitable for freezing

Suitable from 12mth+ as a light snack



  • 1 large ball of mozzarella
  • 3 large basil leaves
  • 2 baby plum tomatoes
  • 1 pitted black olive (or 2 small ones)



  1. Slice 3 thick round slices of mozzarella and place onto a plate.
  2. Place a basil leaf onto each one.
  3. Cut the baby plum tomatoes in half lengthways, then cut ¾ of the way (so not quite in half) lengthways again. Open out a little to create ladybird wings. Place one ladybird onto each leaf.
  4. Cut the olive in half lengthways then in half again the other way to give quarters. Add a quarter to each ladybird as a head (or if your olives are quite small then you can halve rather than quarter them).

Finally, cut the remaining olive quarter (or half) into little bits (spots) and stick 3 spots on each ladybird.
