Kid-Approved Apple Bites Snack Idea
It’s the season where two of my favorite F-words come together…
No, not THAT F-word. C’mon! Keep it clean here, parents!
Fall and Food, y’all! With fall soccer underway and two ravenous kids running around, I’m always having to grab a snack for someone in this house. And while reaching for those tempting cookies and candies that may be lurking sound like a good idea at the time (UGH – thanks a lot, Halloween!), they’re not going to powering my kids with the fuel they need for after school. We can do better. These Kid-Approved Apple Bites are the perfect combo of delicious healthy foods and fall flavors. Packed with protein, crunch and a touch of sweetness, it’s a great easy to make, healthy, and instantly donating meals to families in need this fall. In the season of thanksgiving, it’s the perfect time to give back with Produce for Kids & Feeding America! Ready to make a difference with your healthy snacks?
