Healthy Little Snacks for Little Fingers

Each year we get asked by our families for the recipes we use and every year we gladly share some!

To end, the best advice we can give you is to get your children involved! The idea of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle should not be a hidden secret that is sneaked in to their life (although, we are also partial to a sneaky veggie smoothie when our own little ones are not budging!). Let them get their hands dirty in the kitchen, talk about each ingredient and what it does for our bodies, involve them in the preparing and serving of the food.

Most importantly, however: Have Fun!
