Fall Into Autumn

Every month I will be highlighting a fruit or vegetable including recipes and snack ideas. Using the Food of the Month for inspiration, why not try these for your own program to get the students enthusiastic about trying new fruits or vegetables. 

For the month of September, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the fruit of the month is the APPLE!

I'm sure we’ve all heard the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Some of the many health benefits (highlighted above) prove that apples are not only a tasty snack but great for us! So dig in and make a crunch today.
You know you want to...

Wash and enjoy apples as is or try these fun snack ideas for your home or your nutrition program.

To keep cut apples from going brown, use an elastic to hold the apple together.
