Happy Friday guys! I have another kid friendly recipe today but I promise, for those that don’t have kids or aren’t looking for kid friendly recipes, I will be back next week with my go-to Slow Cooker Chili recipe. Stay tuned!
Today’s post I am especially excited about because I love reading the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar to Will and Andrew. Today’s kid friendly recipe is simple to put together and a fun snack for the kids after school or in their lunch box. If your kids love the book then they will definitely love this snack idea. I had this caterpillar waiting for Will after school and he was thrilled.
On Aug. 31, Produce for Kids and Meijer hosted the third annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign to educate families on the benefits of healthy eating and raise money for nutrition education through Jump with Jill, a music-based health program for kids. Since 2002, Meijer has raised more than $1 million for local children’s organizations. Shoppers will be enouraged to add more produce to their grocery carts from the 11 supplies through September 27th and this will help increase donations.
This is a great way to get your kids excited about fruits and vegetables in a creative and familiar way and help out a great cause!Print
