During the summer we all LOVE going out to the garden to get a bunch of fresh veggies and some fruit. Then we make all kinds of creative things out of the veggies and fruit for snacks. Like for the Woodstock anniversary, we made peace signs and music notes with veggies and then had them for a picnic lunch. It's great because my daughter who is 2 helps us plant them, water them and then pick and eat them! What a great JOB well done!!

Fruit Yogurt Push ups!
We have reusable push up pops, but regular reusable Popsicle trays work great too!
Stuff your favorite fruits into the bottom, middle or even at the end of the container and fill with any flavor low fat yogurt. Pop it in the freezer for a few hours for an amazing tasty summer treat!... Read More
Fresh blueberries and Strawberries from our local farmer's market is a huge hit, along with peaches in our house!
Every morning, my 5 year old and 2 year old go out to the coop and collect chicken and duck eggs. We then hard boil them for snacks or cook them for breakfast or use them in recipes. We love knowing all our eggs come from free-range, happy, healthy chickens and ducks. They are part of the family :)
we also let the kids pick strawberries from the local strawberry patch and then whirl 'em up with the hand blender and add to fresh water and lemon juice for a low sugar strawberry lemonade...so easy and delish!

When we plant our garden, we section off part of it for our son. He chooses what to plant, where to plant it, etc. and then he weeds and waters 'his garden' all summer. When his crops are ready to harvest, he goes out to choose what veggie we should have for supper and brings it in himself...sure makes a five year old LOVE vegetables and makes for many proud moments!
