Advent Calendar Fruit Wreath Plate

Today, I'm excited to be participating in FreshKids' 2015 Fresh Advent Calendar - A Festival of Good Foods.

FreshKids is a movement and company to inspire kids to think, eat and live healthy. Their mission is to connect kids to good foods. They believe foods should be good for you, and do good for the communities. That is the spirit of the 2015 Fresh Advent Calendar – A Festival of Good Foods--to celebrate good foods and celebrate doing good by giving back.

For my plate, I wanted a snack plate that is something my own kids love to eat.  If you've been around the blog any amount of time, you know my kids love fruits.  We made a simple, and very easy to recreate yourself, fruit wreath, featuring double layers of kiwi to created the greenery, strawberry bits of berries, and a sliced strawberry "bow".  To make the bow, core and slice two in half.  Use one pair to make the bow, points touching inwards, then cut a "V" from the other to make the trailing ribbon.  For other options, consider honeydew or grapes for the base, raspberries or watermelon for the decorations.

The charity I'm supporting today is FEED, founded by Lauren Bush Lauren with the simple idea of creating products that would engage people in the fight against hunger in a tangible way. When a child is given a free, nutritious school lunch, it can break the cycle of poverty she was born into and empower her to change her own life. Every product has a number stamped on it that signifies the amount of meals or micronutrient packets provided with its purchase. Visit FEED to learn more about what they do.
