This recipe is great for children who do not like a traditional sandwich in their lunch.
The sweet taste of pineapple and berries in this recipe pairs perfectly with the tart taste of Greek yogurt. If the fruit in this recipe is not to you or your child’s liking, it can be modified to include any fruit.
Including fun recipes like this in your child’s lunch can help give them extra nutritional benefits without arguing about eating their fruits and vegetables. Pineapple can improve immune system health and bone strength. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and fight inflammation and chronic disease.
