Serves: 4

Frozen or canned fruit can be used in this recipe, too!

  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

2. Kids put one slice of cake on each plate; then portion the fruit and juices from the bowl on top of each slice of cake. Serve.

Get exercise while choosing spring fruits. Either go berry picking at a farm or take a walk through an outdoor market.

On the weekend take a family hike with a snack in a backpack or bag. Remember variety. Dry cereals, dried fruits, nuts and apple slices won't weight the pack clown. Encourage exercise-take a family walk after dinner.
