Children need at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables every day. These graham cracker dessert treats make achieving that goal a little easier. We made a little game out of it:
- I prepared a mixture of cream cheese, honey, and vanilla and spread some on half a cracker.
- Students selected their own fruit and then created a fruit face or fun design on their crackers. As you can see in the photo above, our students could also choose a cracker without the cream cheese concoction.
The end results: lots of giggles as the girls enjoyed their treats. Here’s the recipe:
FILLING: Spread filling on 1/2 graham cracker.
- 8-oz. pkg. plain cream cheese (softened)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp honey
FRESH FRUITS: Selections can vary. Choose the fruits that you and your family enjoy!
- Mandarin oranges
Encourage your kiddos to be creative and have fun! The more you can involve them in the meal, the more apt they are to eat and enjoy!
