Berry Pinwheels

Kids always love something fun they can grab and something that looks appealing for them to eat. This is an easy recipe which includes lots of berries. Sometimes kids don’t like fruit on it’s own so introducing fruit in fun ways can help kids get excited about eating foods they may not try.  We often find kids eat what their friends are eating.  It’s amazing to hear from parents that their child tried a new fruit or vegetable at their KES Club for the first time. We encourage all of our KES Clubs to serve fruits and vegetables each day, and we also encourage them to experiment with new fruits!
