Nutritious and Delicious fun for kids for 4th of July
Here is a fun, delicious and fun activity for kids of all ages to enjoy for this 4th of July!It will make your kids feel liberated.
Involving your children in the preparation of food can help gain their interest in trying healthy foods they might normally turn up their noses at. This is the perfect activity and recipe that will get your kids involved in food preparation and get them to eat all their fruits and maybe even try a few new ones. Definitely better for a bbq party then chips and cookies this holiday weekend.
The fruits we will be using for this recipe are strawberries (red), blueberries (blue), and chucks of fresh coconut (white). Strawberries have a wide range of nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C,
Blueberries are very high in fiber and and are rich in Vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene as well as rich in the minerals potassium, manganese, magnesium.
Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein and is also a great body builder . It is a super omega 3 fatty acid.So your kids will be happy and will not have the usual holiday meltdowns from to much sugar and processed foods
Here are the simple steps for this 4ht of July Fruit Kabob:
Chucks of Fresh Coconut, Apples, or White Peaches
Bamboo sticks/chop sticks
Cut up all the fruit and place it in a bowl, then let the children make their own kabobs! You can also substitute watermelon or banana's and still have a festive fruit kabob. Let your kids be creative and make any designs they want!
