Fun & Healthy Yogurt Buttons!

Making healthy foods fun and exciting for kids can encourage them to choose healthier options more often. Sometimes children say they don’t like a particular food, but if offered in a different or creative way they may try it and like it!  A while back, we shared this fun and delicious recipe with you.   Many of our KES Club Coordinators told us how much they loved these – they were easy to make and children love them.  In case you missed it the first time around, we are sharing it with you again.  Check out this simple idea as a neat snack for your kids to try after school!
