Enjoy healthy snacks while also having some fun in the kitchen! Entertaining the kids all summer can be a bit tricky, so we're here to help with exciting food activities that are great for kids and parents, especially on the clean-up.
Get Crafty With Your Food
Let creativity soar this summer by making edible art with fresh fruit! Whether you bake and decorate cookies or arrange fruit into the colors of the rainbow, your kids can enjoy a good snack and have fun too! Kix Cereal shares a great idea for making A Fruity Butterfly Snack with orange slices and green grapes. The best part of this craft is there should be little to no clean up, if your kiddos finish their snack!

Make Fresh Fruit Juice for Breakfast
Breakfast is one of the best places to start when your kids are wanting to learn how to cook. Start with simple but delicious foods, such as scrambled eggs or pancakes. Another exciting and equally tasty morning activity is making fresh pressed fruit juice! All you need are Darling Lemons or Oranges, a juice press, and a set of little hands that would like to help juice! Create your own recipe by adding sugar, agave, or even a little champagne for mom. If you have an adventurous eater in your family, you might also try our Ginger Citrus Juice Shot.
Have a Picnic in the Park
Grab a blanket and a cooler of goodies, then head to your backyard or the nearest park. Enjoy a picnic under the sun. Be sure to pack your basket with a few bottles of water, sandwiches, chips, and of course, fresh fruit. Juicy orange segments are perfect for snackin’ in the summer heat and they’re an excellent source of Vitamin C!
