The local organic grocery store in my area, Jimbo’s, has this wonderful sign hanging in their store. It states their vision of “a piece of organic fruit in every child’s reusable lunch bag.” It’s such a simple goal, but it could really make a difference. The USDA says the average child needs nearly as much fruit in their diet as an adult, about 1-2 cups a day. Why not knock out a portion of that and make this kid friendly recipe of Organic Fruit Skewers and Honey Yogurt Dip for breakfast?
Kids love to play, and playing with their food is no exception. I made this a fun to eat finger food so I would get no complaints from my three year old. Making fruit skewers is a great way to get children to eat healthy, organic food. It’s also budget friendly at only $3.94. That’s for 4 servings! That means each portion is less than a buck. This recipe can also easily be adapted based on what foods are in season or what you already have in your kitchen. Here are the ingredients that I used, along with their cost:
- $0.83 Organic Bananas from Sprout’s.
- $0.75 Organic Red Seedless Grapes from Jimbo’s.
- $1.00 Organic Blueberries from Sprout’s.
- $1.00 Wallaby Organic Plain Yogurt from Sprout’s.
- $0.36 Local Honey from the farmer’s market.
