Who says cake has to have flour, fat, and sugar? Not us! In fact, I made this cute and quick”fruit” cake moments before my kids walked in from school. The first thing they wanted to do was take a bite out of it! In fact, the neighbor boy got really close to it and proclaimed how delicious he thought it was.
Of course all I had to do was use:
- 2-4 pineapple rings (from a can)
- watermelon cut into rings
- small slice of banana (to hold the candle)
- 1 candle
Adorable, right? I got the idea from Produce for Kids, who right now has a bunch of easy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks; all using produce of course! These “Ideal Meals” are part of a new campaign to help kids eat healthy, as well as donate money to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Between May and July, by purchasing produce at participating stores, a portion of your money will be donated to local children’s hospitals.
Other produce for kids recipes I like include:
- The party cake I made
- Super Duper Oatmeal Pancakes
- Veggie Frittata and Raspberry Plum Yogurt Parfait
- Peach and Tomato Salsa
…and tons of more delicious fruits and veggie ideas that your kids will love!
