If you have kids and are looking for ways to encourage them to eat healthier foods, Weelicious.com is a fantastic resource for you. Catherine McCord is so creative in making her recipes not just healthy but fun for kids. Check out these adorable little stuffed strawberries. Strawberries are in season and one my families favorite summer fruits. You could serve these as a poolside appetizer that would be easy to make and enjoyed by the whole family.
The strawberries are filled with soft cream cheese and preserves for the perfect combination of flavors. To make it even more patriotic you could substitute the chocolate chips she uses in the eyes with little blueberries for a red white and blue treat this holiday weekend.
