Cool Down and Fire Up with Healthy Snacks!

Wednesday, 13 August 2014 00:00

Help your students cool down from the late summer heat with healthy frozen treats. Try freezing fruits such as grapes and melon chunks in the freezer, or make "popsicles" by inserting sticks into peeled bananas and freezing them.

 Experiment with frozen smoothie recipes, and help students design a favorite recipe they can make at home for a healthy breakfast or snack. Healthy veggies such as spinach and raw zucchini could blend right in, without changing the flavor or texture of a fruit smoothie!
