Most children are really hungry when they get home from school. Here is a quick snack even young children can help prepare.

Apple and Cheese Posts

1 apple
2 ounces of Cheddar cheese
Orange juice or other fruit juice
Toothpicks

Cut apple into quarters and remove core. Slice each quarter in half and cut crosswise into bite-size pieces. Dip apple chunks in orange juice or other juice, such as pineapple, lemon or lime.

Cut cheese in cubes about the size of the apples. Stick a toothpick into apples and cheese.  Arrange all on a plate.

Good to the core!
