Serving Frozen Fruit!

It’s a fact that during Winter months in our province of Newfoundland and Labrador, it is sometimes hard to get fresh fruit.  We hear all the time from our KES Clubs that serving fresh fruit all year round can be a challenge. Our goal is to serve fruit daily and we encourage all our clubs to come up with different ways to do so. Canned and frozen fruit can be just as nutritious as fresh.  Many of our Clubs stock up on frozen fruit when it’s on sale and serve smoothies regularly and the kids love them! Try this smoothie this week at your KES Club:
