Yogurt Fruit Dip

Calcium, vitamin D, potassium and fiber are important nutrients that most of us don’t get enough of. This simple, flavorful dip is a delicious way to get more of these (check to see if your yogurt is fortified with vitamin D – not all yogurts are), and is great for all fruits. Want additional potassium-rich options? Try guava, cherries, pomegranate (these can be a choking hazard, be sure to only offer these seeds to children over 2 years), nectarines, honeydew, and persimmons. 

This recipe also has steps appropriate for little helpers. 

Did you know that even fruit with a hard rind still needs to be rinsed? Check out this video for how to rinse a cantaloupe
