Serving Fruit Daily in our KES Clubs!

Here at Kids Eat Smart Foundation NL we know the importance of including fruits and veggies with every meal.  Often times, it’s a struggle to ensure kids are getting enough fruits.  We encourage all of our clubs to serve fruit on a daily basis. This can be fresh, frozen or canned.  Serving fruit daily allows us to ensure we are getting the right amount of servings each day. Some kids are able to try fruit they may not have tried before. Many of our KES Clubs serve smoothies which is a fun way to serve fruit!  Try this smoothie recipe at your KES Club this week:
