Can you believe that it’s already August? Rhetorical question, I suppose. Now that I’ve gone back to school again myself, I’m feeling all the angst that kids do—where did the summer go, can I still get x, y, z done? Will I like my new teachers?

Doesn’t this say “summer”!

And speaking of school starting, I wanted to share one of the insights I had long ago about school kids and healthy eating.

Served!

After a long day at school (or daycare or after school care), kids or teens are usually seriously hungry when they step in the door. 

This means that foods they’d usually turn their noses up are going to look good. Sooo, it’s a perfect time to add some nutrition that’s still fun–like this Watermelon Feta Salad. Fruit, vegetable (cucumber has more nutrition than I’d thought!), protein… even calcium. That will start the night off right!

And as a further tip, don’t tell anyone to eat it, just put it out on the table. Then it’s their idea too! 

This Watermelon Feta Salad is easy to put together and would be equally at home for any summer picnics and potlucks still coming up. It’s definitely on my party serving list!

‘Cause I plan to make the most of summer!

  1. • 1 cup chopped Cucumber

      Thanks Mary. I am doing photography and e-productions (audio/video for the internet). It’s fun but a lot of work too!

    Watermelon and feta pair wonderfully together, but I love the other ingredients you added to the mix like the red scallions (must find!) , mint and honey.

      If you can’t find red scallions, red onion chopped smaller should work fine. My CSAs provide the red scallions so I’m lucky there.
