Delicious and Healthy Ideas
A Fruity Graduate
Source: A Thrifty Mom
- Individual fruit or applesauce cups (go for the unsweetened version)
- 4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)
- Googly eyes
- Glue stick
- Sharpie (optional)
- Bakers twine, thin strips of paper or ribbon
- Turn the unopened fruit or applesauce cups upside down.
- Glue the card stock square on top of the fruit or applesauce cup (as pictured below).
- Glue the twine, paper or ribbon on top of the card stock to look like a tassel.
- Glue googly eyes on the outside of the cup.
- Using the googly eyes as a guide, draw a face – Make it silly, happy, however you are feeling about graduation.
- When you’re ready, turn over your “graduate”, open and enjoy!
Turkey Diploma and Fruity Graduation Cap
- Sliced turkey, or meat of choice
- Kiwi, peeled
- Graham crackers
- Fruit rope, for tassel
- Roll up your meat and tie it with a ribbon.
- Place the kiwi on a plate and top it with a half of a graham cracker (in the shape of a square).
- Place the fruit rope on top of the graham cracker, hanging off like a tassel.
Fruit & Yogurt Bar
- Clear plastic cups (at least 10 ounces)
- Variety of fruit choices (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
- Low-fat yogurt (either plain or variety flavors)
- Low-fat granola or other low sugar cereal
- Bowls for toppings
- Spoons for the toppings
- Spoons for the guests
- Permanent marker
- Based on the age of the students, decide if students are old enough to make their own yogurt parfait or if adults are needed to scoop ingredients for them.
- Choose the type of yogurt and scoop it into the students’ cup. We recommend having at least 2 flavors to choose from.
- Choose which toppings you want and spoon as much of each topping on top of the yogurt. It’s nice to alternate granola/cereal and fruit, but it’s up to you.
