Whole Wheat Strawberry Muffin

Muffins are always a great breakfast for kids. They are easy to grab and go and are a delicious start to the day.  This recipe is great because it also includes fruit.  Sometimes kids are more likely to try new fruit when it is served in a different way.  These muffins, can be served with fruit and milk, to create a balanced breakfast. Try this recipe sometime this week at your KES Club.
