Teach our children well…
Remember cooking with Grandma? Food is supposed to be fun. If your child learns one new skill each day and you enjoy each other’s company – mission accomplished! Let’s get our children back in the kitchen sparking their creativity, and teaching them good nutrition and health. Let them see, taste, smell and play. They will thank you!
Keep some extra fresh fruit salsa in the refrigerator for a healthy snack.
Fruit Salsa with Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips
½ cup each of favorite fruits, chopped – to equal 3 cups of chopped fruit
(Suggestions: kiwi, grapes, blueberries, mango, peaches, strawberries, oranges)
1 tablespoon of freshly chopped cilantro
1 whole scallion, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice (you may substitute lemon or orange juice)
Combine ingredients and set aside.
Cut each whole wheat tortilla round into 8 pieces, cutting as pie slices. Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400 degrees until lightly brown, approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Dip into the salsa…enjoy!
Note: A great after-school snack for the kids!
