I’m highlighting this recipe by Cami Wells, Extension Educator in Hall County, because the recipe is a simple and healthy snack for all ages. Plus, it includes three out of the five food groups: dairy, fruits and grains.

(Makes 1 serving)

1/4 cup diced fresh strawberries
2 tablespoon low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 squares chocolate graham crackers

1. Spread yogurt on graham crackers.
2. Top with chopped strawberries. Enjoy!

Cami’s notes: Feel free to use any type of fresh or canned fruit in place of the strawberries. Greek yogurt works well because of its added thickness.
