In case you didn’t know, we at Libra Nutrition conduct the fun and interactive Hungry Hippo tours at local supermarkets every month. We want to teach children healthy eating habits early in life and they do so by taking part in our organized scavenger hunt where they learn about the nutritional values of a variety of foods.  An easy and fun-to-make recipe is handed out to encourage parents to try the tasty and easy recipes with their kids! 

To celebrate Thanksgiving, this no-bake recipe of strawberry Jell-O pie is the recipe of choice.

California strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C.  In fact, 1 serving of California strawberries has more Vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C is vital to the body’s maintenance of overall health, especially for children. It helps prevent scurvy and has an immune-boosting effect.

Enjoy this easy and delicious strawberry Jell-O pie and have a great Thanksgiving!
