Healthy Snack – Veggie Fun!
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m serving on snack day until the very last minute. I watch the flyers for specials and shop the stores and look for fresh fresh fresh! This week, nothing in the local grocery stores caught my eye (or budget), so I went to my tried and true… Roseland Produce. They are always so helpful in letting me know what’s freshest and are also great at helping me choose quantities – something that can be akin to playing mathematician with servings. How many carrots are needed to feed 630 kids? 50lbs!! That’s a whole lotta washing, peeling and chopping I’ll tell ya!
The fun part comes in with the change up of shapes. Most kids are used to carrot sticks and cucumber rounds… so we figured, why not change that around? We made cucumber sticks and carrot rounds! Why not?
Sometimes all it takes is that one small change to get them to eat something they normally would have passed up. This snack was received with many smiles and much appreciation.
