One of our KES Clubs favorite go to fruit is apples. Apples are usually readily available at a reasonable cost and most kids seem to love them! This easy recipe is a great way to change things up and to get kids to eat more fruit. Making fruits fun and easy to grab can get kids excited about healthy eating. This dip can be prepared ahead of time and volunteers can cut up the apples as kids arrive. Cutting apples, when you are just about to serve, is key as kids don’t usually like the brown color they turn when exposed to the air for too long. Try this recipe at your KES Club this week.
