The 4th of July is almost here.  Many people celebrate by planning a party.  It’s a fun way to enjoy summertime weather while keeping the kitchen clean!  This week, a good friend of Simple Solutions came up with a wonderful and child-friendly recipe for you to download.  You and your children can make it together while getting ready for your own celebrations.

While involving your children in the planning stages, it’s a good time to talk about healthy food choices.  On the worksheet have your children list the foods that are on the picnic menu.  Have them determine what food group each belongs to and draw one serving of each in the picnic basket.
