During the summer months, moms know how incredibly bored the kids get with the same old snacks. We moms need to kick things into high gear in terms of creative snacking, while maintaining a healthy balance in our children’s diet. I was in the kitchen getting creative when I noticed the leftover cake we had in the fridge that I baked with my youngest son, some fat-free vanilla yogurt, and some fruit in the fridge. That's where I came up with this kid-approved and somewhat healthy snack to use up leftovers in the fridge, and sneak in nutrition in fruit form. My kids loved it - you will too!
