I’m highlighting this recipe from Nebraska Extension’s Nutrition Education Program (NEP) since many Malcolm students loved making and eating this recipe during one of their Healthy Habits class (see article in this e-newsletter). The mini bagels were topped with cream cheese and fresh blueberries.

(Makes 1 serving)

1/2 bagel
1 tablespoon cream cheese
2 tablespoons canned or fresh fruit, chopped
1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)

1. Place bagel on plate.
2. Spread cream cheese on bagel.
3. Spoon fruit on top of bagel.
4. Sprinkle with brown sugar (optional).
