Healthy Summer Snack for Kids: Fro-Yo Grapes

Need to cool down on a sweltering hot summer day? These fro-yo grapes are an excellent healthy summer snack for kids and they'll help the whole family cool down with icy grapey deliciousness.

Assembling these grapes is extra fun because it involves toothpicks! We recently read about the magic of toothpicks and we believe it. There's something super fun about spearing your food and eating it right off the stick. So try these fro-yo grapes for an interactive afternoon snack! They also make a grape (!) excuse to play with your food.

Pro Tips

  1. Our favorite topping is dried coconut, but chia seeds and granola are also grape (we love puns, we can't stop).
  2. If you or your kid chef is getting hangry, you can always dip the grapes in yogurt without freezing them and they're still very tasty.
