Frozen Fruit Cups

When my children were little, I was in a constant battle with the ice cream man who would show up everyday, exactly thirty minutes before dinner. A shrewd business move on his part, but one that drove me crazy every time I heard my children screaming from the driveway. I wish I had these fruit cups back then. Filled with fruit and marshmallow, my children would have had their sweet tooth soothed and would have still wanted dinner.

The great thing about these cups, is that all the ingredients are shelf stable. Pick the ingredients up the next time you are at the grocery store to make them anytime you want.

Let your little ones help you in the kitchen with these fruit cups. It is a great way to get them excited about eating more fruit.

And maybe, just maybe, they will keep the ice cream man at bay.
