6 small servings
Prepare one package of orange jello, using one and a half cups of liquid.
Pare and shred a large carrot. When the jello is semi-firm, avert your eyes and stir in the carrot shreds - also a small can of (drained!) pineapple chunks, if you have some. Let it jell the rest of the way in the refrigerator.
And yes, your small child will likely eat this - the orange of the jello masks the carrots a bit.
