Posted on August 29, 2016

After school snacks are something all kids look forward to, but it can be hard to entice kiddos to enjoy their fruits and vegetables.


We’ve come up with two great snack recipes that will allow your kids to pick the flavors they want while sneaking in some healthy staples thanks to our CSA boxes. You may even enjoy them too!

Jazz up apples and pears and turn them into an after school snack your kids will crave.
