Summer Fruit Salad!

Nothing says summer more then a fresh and fruit salad.  Sometimes whole fruits are less likely to be eaten by younger children, while older students and youth prefer to grab a whole banana or an apple.  To encourage all students to enjoy fruits at their KES Clubs, try making a simple fruit salad.  It’s great for all ages.  It’s different, colorful and of course delicious.  Fruit salad can be used as a side to another breakfast item, add to cereal, make into a yogurt parfait or just simply eat by itself.  Take some time and try serving a delicious fruit salad at your KES Club. Try this simple fruit salad at your KES Club this week.
