Fruit Rainbow
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Make your own fruit rainbow salad as a fun activity for the children. Use any coloured fruit or vegetables that are in season. Let children choose their own ingredients for each layer (a great way to practice the division of responsibility in feeding). They can also design their own healthy yogurt.
