Strawberries to the Rescue!
Stuck inside with the kids? We’ve got you covered. These are interesting and odd times we currently find ourselves in, and we all need to stick together to make things work (metaphorically stick together, of course–remember that social distancing!). As such, we’re here to show you how strawberries are not only a healthy, sweet, anytime treat, they can be great little helpers when it comes to keeping little ones (including bigger little ones) entertained.
The following recipe from Amazing Eats not only yields a fun snack for the whole family, it’s a great way to keep kids busy without the need for a flashing, blipping screen! This project has a lot of room for flexibility of ingredients. Licorice ropes can work for the tail, candy-coated chocolates can work for the ears–get creative with what you have on hand! Your little one might even have an idea for a different animal or creature altogether. How about a strawberry Martian with pretzel sticks for antennae? A little car with blueberries or O-shaped cereal bits for wheels? The possibilities are endless! But, as promised, here are those adorable little mice to get you started…

And remember, if only the sweetest, vibrant, ruby-colored beauties will do, reach for a 100% recyclable clamshell package of Well•Pict Berries strawberries.
We wish you the very best of health and hope this fun little project brightens the faces of everyone in your household–kids and adults alike!
