4th of July Fruit Popsicles with Yogurt

These healthy honey-sweetened popsicles are fun to make and eat, especially on the 4th of July!

Add to your festivities with this simple and fun activity! We bought the molds at MiniSo, but you can find cute molds at the 99cents store, Target or kitchen stores. When possible, use honey in place of sugar, as it helps the bees and they support our crops and ultimately the food we eat. By the simple act of buying honey, you’re protecting the bee population, which has decreased in recent years to a combination of pathogens, pesticides, and poor nutrition.

Check out our Tasty Tuesday Kid Video on SuperKids Nutrition Instagram to see how these popsicles are made.
