Don’t forget Apple Day is this coming Friday, May 13, 2016! We encourage all KES Clubs to take part. If not on Friday then whichever day suits your KES Club the best. Serve up nutritious apples in fun ways to help promote nutrition as well as encourage all students to bring $1 along to help support and sustain their KES Club. Try this warm apple treat in celebration of Apple Day:
Baked Apple Slices
1 large apple, unpeeled and washed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the core and slice the apple. Sprinkle both sides of the apple slices with cinnamon. Place on the baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes on each side or until golden-brown and tender.
