Before you start decorating your gingerbread man you will need some type of healthy frosting so the ingredients will stick to the cookie. Try using my strawberry frosting to create a base that your toppings can adhere to. Then simply fill a piping bag with a frosting tip and let your kids have fun! (You can buy this in most grocery stores) Beware that frosting will get everywhere, including the floors, but your kids will have a lot of fun.
Next you can use any type of healthy food that you have in your cupboard that would make for interesting shapes, colors and designs. To decorate our gingerbread mean we used blackberries, blueberries, different types of nuts, yogurt covered sunflower seeds, cereal, oats and/or carob chips. In addition, there are some candy toppings that you can buy also that use natural coloring, versus chemical colors if you need to put a candy on top like natural colored M & Ms.
