You can take classic crackers like RITZ and make a simple, yet delicious snack that the kids will love with a few easy tips. 

Start With Crackers 

This step is obvious, but it’s the most important part of the charcuterie board – especially when the kids are involved. RITZ is an all-time favorite and definitely a must-have for an easy cheese and cracker board for those busy afternoons. Let’s face it, more like EVERY afternoon.

The best part about purchasing RITZ crackers from Walmart is that they are partnering with Feeding America during the month of March and donating $0.10, up to $1,000,000, for every RITZ product purchased at Walmart.

So don’t be shy on the cracker board, the more, the merrier! Every purchase will help Feeding America’s initiative to ensure that families can put food on their tables. An additional $1 donation will be made each time shoppers share the initiative from the Walmart.com brand page.

There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing kids all over are benefiting from a simple afternoon snack!

Serve Your Favorite Fruits

Fruits pair well with cheese and crackers and also provide a bit of natural sweetness to the board.

You can even go as far as cutting some in halves to make topping the cheese and crackers more fun.


Or, leave some whole for older kids, or adults, who prefer them that way. For our family, grapes, strawberries, and blueberries made the perfect combination of fruits. 

Sprinkle Your Favorite Nuts

Taking a handful of mixed nuts also adds a bit of contrast to the board and makes a great separator from the crackers and the freshly washed fruit.

Don’t Forget The Cheese

Of course, you can’t make a cracker and cheese board without the cheese. There are so many flavors out there to enjoy. Personally, we enjoy any cheese labeled “smoked.”

RITZ also makes it easy to enjoy the cheese and cracker taste in one bite with their RITZ Cheese Crispers. These were a win for my kids and I highly recommend adding them to your cracker board.
