Fruit Pizza (For a Healthy Snack or Meal)
Fruits (washed, peeled, and cut), Honey Crunch Wheat Germ, Large Oatmeal Cookies, Malt-Sweetened Carob Chips, Non-Dairy Whipped Topping (a lot), Paper plates, plastic knives and forks.
As a culminating activity you will have the students/parents purchase fruit, organic and not, many different varieties. If they can’t find many organic fruits, have them buy fresh fruits and wash them really well then, peel them before they bring them to class. You, the teacher, will make a large oatmeal cookie, for each student. Have four parents buy non-dairy whipped topping, a lot of it and some Honey Crunch Wheat Germ. All the fruit should be cut into nice neat pieces. Monitor the cutting closely. No real sharp knives.
Have the students place their cookies on their plate and spread the non-dairy whipped topping over the top leaving about 1 inch from the edges clean. Then they can add what- ever fruits they like, on top of the whipped topping. Have them arrange it in a symmetrical design (an optional Math moment). Top the whole arrangement with sprinkles of Wheat Germ and Carob Chips sweetened with malt sugar. Happy Eating.
Encourage the students to try this at home with their family members and friends.
