Healthy Candy Corn Inspired Popsicles | Help Feed America This Fall
Fall is in the air and the sweetness of the season has landed at Raising Whasians! My heart is swelling with excitement to share these Healthy Candy Corn Popsicles, perfect inspiration for the season! But these easy fall popsicles are so much MORE than family-friendly sweet treats. Yes, these popsicles are helping to Feed America at the same time! That’s right, we’re creating delicious healthy recipes and giving back this fall. Best part, it’s so easy for your family to get involved! Check out my delicious recipe and details on the latest fall campaign from Produce for Kids!
While the north may be enjoying falling leaves and cooler temperatures, Florida is still enjoying sunny days and highs still in the 80s! There’s no better way to bring a little fall into the Sunshine State than with fall inspired popsicles. I’ve always loved candy corn growing up…but now as a mom, I’m more conscious of the choices I’m making for my family. That’s why I love giving my kids as much fresh produce as possible, even during the busy fall season. Bananas are staples in my house, and I love bringing some unique and tasty flavors like mangoes home with me. Inspired by this season’s fresh produce, giving back, and my love of candy corn, these healthy candy corn popsicles were created. And my kids are LOVING them! Ready to make your own?
