Melon Strawberry Bruschetta
I am a huge proponent of healthy eating. Sure, I indulge once in a while, but overall, I’m pretty passionate about putting things into my body that will benefit it. And my hope is by sharing recipes here, others will be inspired to do the same.
That’s why I’m honored to be partnering with the Produce for Kids Campaign with Meijer to raise funds for Jump with Jill. Produce for Kids is dedicated to educating families on the benefits of healthy eating, providing simple meal solutions and raising money for children’s non-profit organizations.
I’ve worked hard (and continue to do so) to instill healthy eating habits in my kids. There is junk food everywhere! And they sure know how to market it! I came across this fact the other day…
One third of American kids eat fast food everyday (source) .
The experts say that kids are getting 40% of their calories from fast food. Eating junk food results in all kinds of health issues, such as obesity and depression. This makes my heart sad! I’m so grateful for organizations like Produce for Kids that help educate our future generation on healthy eating habits and raise funds for children’s charities.
But how do you make this fabulous Melon Strawberry Bruschetta? It’s a cinch!
It’s as easy as slicing up some fruit, adding some vinegar and oil and topping off a crusty french loaf. I know, sounds delicious, right? My kids gobbled this up, we couldn’t get enough!
Next time your kids ask for some chips or candy, try making this tasty treat for them!
