Naturepedic's Kid-Friendly Fruit Treats to Beat the Summer Heat
Summer is here, the kids are home, and the heat is right around the corner. Between summer activities and the ice cream truck playing its frenzy-inciting tune—your kids are going to get their fair share of ice cream treats. Our friends at Naturepedic are sharing some of their favorite quick, healthy, and kid-friendly fruit treats that will save you from some of those sugar-infused meltdowns!
Frozen fruit is a great way to quench the need for that mid-afternoon, sugary frozen treat. Blueberries, grapes, and watermelon are just some of the fruits that taste amazing after some time in your freezer. With organic frozen fruit options, this is a great tasty treat to have in your freezer all summer long.
Fresh Fruit Pizza
Put your pizza decorating skills to the test! Watermelon slices double as pizza dough, with small berries and cut up fruit as the toppings! This also doubles as a fun activity for those bored kiddos.
Satisfy those cookie cravings with the snap of crisp, refreshing apple slices, covered in delicious peanut butter and topped with a sweet treat like chocolate chips! Make sure to slice the apple down the middle to achieve the circular cookie shape!
Banana Peanut Butter Bites
You’ll need banana, peanut butter, and blueberries! These scrumptious little bite sized treats are perfect for an afternoon snack. Spread the peanut butter over cut-up bananas, add the blueberries, and presto! You’ve got a quick treat to satisfy those tiny mouths.
