Cherry tomato fun

Most kids will happily devour cherry tomatoes though some might need a bit more convincing. Here are a few fun ways to use cherry tomatoes (which can be in plentiful supply at the moment in vegie patches across the country!) and perhaps include (hide….) a few extra vegies in the food fun at the same time.
