For the Kids
Kids love getting Valentines and treats on this special day. Most kids also love fruit. Try these Fresh Fruit Pops and watch their faces light up. They are also fun to make, so let them join in the fun!
Fresh Fruit Pops
Just stick a skewer into a strawberry or a chunk of banana, dip it in your child’s favorite yogurt and then roll the pop in granola. These are super easy and can be kept in the refrigerator or try them frozen for a cool treat.
