Fun After School Snack!

Serving creative menu ideas can encourage kids to try new things.  Sometimes store brand frozen yogurts can have a lot of added sugar.  Using ingredients you likely already have at your community centre KES Club or at home  – have these FroYo Bites on hand for those hungry kids as they head to their after school community centre or home from school.  Including fruit and yogurt checks off two of our Food Groups from Canada’s Food Guide, so this recipe is a well balanced snack.
