Spring has Sprung!

“Spring has sprung” and summer is getting near. With the snow gone (in most places of the province), flowers are starting to bloom and the grass is getting greener….the colours outside are just a pleasure to look at. There isn’t many weeks left before your KES Club will be winding down for the school year. In the spirit of the season, try to incorporate some of the beautiful colours of spring in your KES Club menu. If you haven’t already done so, try this easy but colourful recipe for the students you serve:

Bug Crackers


  •  Cherry tomatoes , red & yellowbug.cracker
  •  Cucumber sliced
  •  Cheese slice
  •  Small pretzels
  •  Round crackers


Slice the tomatoes and cucumber in half. Cut round circles out of the cheese using a cookie cutter. Poke the pretzels into the yellow tomato halves. Assemble your bug onto the cracker!
