Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and all we see when out and about are heart shaped chocolates and candy. It’s been a tradition to celebrate Valentine’s Day with sweet treats, even in our schools. It’s a great time to try something new and refreshing. You can still treat your children at your KES Club, but keep in mind the foods we serve should always be full of good nutrition. As a special fun treat, serve up some valentine themed foods this week and next! Try these fun Valentine Fruit Kabobs – kids always love eating foods that look a little fun and different.
- Kabob sticks (avoid ones with pointed ends)
Using a heart shape cookie cutter; cut watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe into shapes. Insert fruit onto sticks and serve with yogurt.
