Ideas for 3 easy, healthy July 4th appetizers that are red, white and blue!
Today I’ve got some easy, festive and fun appetizers for you! It’s all about the red, white and blue over here for the upcoming July 4th holiday.
Funny side story: When M was 18 months, we were splashing in the bath and that was a favorite time for me to bring up random topics to discuss: colors, shapes, but also geography, history, even politics. This was in 2012 so there was a presidential election going on.
I told her – and repeated for a few weeks – that our current president was “Obama.” It’s very similar to “mama” so I knew she’d be able to get it. And it was always, “Who’s the president?” M: “Obama!”
Well, a couple weeks later at school, it’s February and President’s Week and they are talking about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Her teachers say “president” and M goes, “Obama.”
They were floored! Couldn’t wait to tell me about it at pick-up that day and we all laughed. She’s a smart cookie. 😉
Anyway, we love to be patriotic and the kiddos love them some American flags. So I wanted to come up with a healthy, delicious, whole food recipe that was red, white and blue. No food coloring or artificial flavors here. (Just like my red, white and blue yogurt parfaits from last week.)
And, let’s be honest, nothing that requires too much creativity. Not my strong suit.
So here is not one, not two, but three super easy July 4th appetizers that are great for kiddos and adults alike.…
