Finding healthy snacks that children will go crazy for isn’t always an easy task. Snacks are a great way to get a variety of fruits and vegetables and other nutritious foods into your child’s diet. However, fruit and veggies with dip can get boring day after day, as can cheese and crackers. Brighten up snack time by serving these delicious fruit pizzas to your child and their friends….they can even help make it!
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (if you use plain you may want to add a sweetener such as honey)
- 2 tsp orange or lime juice
- Seasonal Fruit
Combine the yogurt, vanilla and orange/lime juice in a bowl and whisk until well blended. Spread over tortillas – you can make the tortillas small by using a circular cookie cutter or the lid of a mason jar. Place a variety of fruit in bowls and allow the children to top with their favorites.
