Healthy Eating Challenge – Day 4 - Recipe - 1
Hello! Welcome to Day 4 of the Healthier Eating Challenge with Farm Food and the Parent Resource Portal. Here is Recipe #1. I was reading through one of my many cookbooks (I have a lot!) and came across this recipe for snacks on a stick in my Taste of Home Kid Approved Cookbook. It looked like a great idea to make the same old boring snacks more fun! Pictured here are three different skewers – a meat and cheese, a fruit and a veggie; but you can put whatever you want (or your kids will eat) on yours. Get your kids involved for even more fun!
SNACKS ON A STICK
Wooden skewers or long toothpicks
For the veggie skewer:
Baby carrots, steamed
Bell peppers, large chunks
For the fruit skewer:
Kiwis, peeled and chunked
Clementines, peeled and separated
For the meat and cheese skewer:
Mozzarella cheese, cubed
Turkey pepperettes, cubed
Just thread alternating items onto the skewers - you could even use a bit of ranch dressing or low-fat yogurt for dipping. Enjoy!
