A PEARfectly Fun Snack For Kids

Additional Reading

(NC)—Looking for ways to incorporate healthy foods into your kid's snacks that they will actually want to eat? Sweet and juicy fresh pears are a versatile and yummy addition to a lot of childrens' favorite snack foods. Fresh USA Pears are loaded with good-for-you stuff like Vitamin C, potassium and fiber, but they are so sweet that your child won't guess they are eating a very healthy fruit. Pears contain levulose, one of the sweetest known sugars, making them a good alternative to processed sweets since an average size pear has only 100 calories and no saturated fat. You can find a gallery of great kid's recipes and games at www.usapears.com.

In the meantime, here are a few quick and easy ways to add fresh pears to your child's snack menu:

• Add fresh sliced pears to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

• Top a bowl of frozen low-fat vanilla or chocolate yogurt with wedges of fresh pears.

• Sprinkle chopped pears on hot or cold cereal.

• Halve and core a fresh pear. Fill up the center with one of your child's favorite soft foods. (Jelly/jam, caramel or chocolate sauces are tops on our topping list!)

• Tie pieces of "string cheese" around fresh slices of pears
