Apple Season & Fun Food for Kids
September is the beginning of apple season but it can also still be hot. Apple salads are a perfect way to bridge late summer and early fall. And with the kids back in school, you’re going to need some fun recipes for afterschool snacks and team events. Join us in the Life.Style.Live! kitchen and see what we cooked up this month!
Broccoli Apple Salad (No Mayo)
This broccoli apple salad is a great reminder that not all salads need to be lettuce-based. Instead of lettuce, this salad uses crunchy broccoli as the base. Crisp apples, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds give it those fall flavors we are all craving this time of year.
Apple Tortellini Pasta Salad
This salad isn’t just delicious, it’s a showstopper! Use it as the centerpiece of your table at your next football-watching party. The recipe calls for Rave® apples but Honeycrisp apples are a good substitute if you’re still waiting on Rave® apples to hit your grocery store.
Preparing fruits and veggies in a fun and exciting way is a proven way to get kids to eat more of them. Next up, we are sharing fun food ideas that you can use as afterschool snacks or serve at your child’s team event or birthday party.
Emoji Fruit Tray
