Southern District YMCA celebrated Healthy Kids Day on April 5 at YMCA Camp Lincoln, in conjunction with the 4th Annual Paddle Plunge. Activity stations featuring non-elimination CATCH games, the climbing wall, archery, carpetball and the waterfront slides entertained families before the Paddle Plunge into Kingston Lake. The most popular activity proved itself with outstanding reviews and crowds of people of all ages: healthy snack tasting. Appealing taste buds of 4 year olds and 84 year olds, here are the recipes of the well-liked snacks of Healthy Kids Day.
In a blender put: 1 banana cut into chunks, 1/4 pineapple peeled, cored and cubed, 1/2 cup of juice, and 1/2 cup of water. On a summer day add 4 ice cubes. Blend and enjoy! *For a little green power, add some fresh kale and blend until smooth.
Fruit Infused Water
Put a few fresh or frozen berries in water, chill and serve. Refreshing!
Veggies and Dip
1 part sour cream, 1 part plain yogurt, 1 pack of dry onion or veggie soup mix. Mix it together and let stand. Serve with cut, raw veggies.
Cut bite size pieces of fruit, toss with orange juice for freshness, top with shredded coconut and raisins. Yum!
