Today is the first day of school for kids here in South Florida. With the added excitement of the Solar Eclipse, which arrived just in time for school getting out today, we decided to throw a little get together for the kids.

Always utilizing what we have fresh from our farmpicked4u.com box, I have put together some Solar Themed Snack Ideas that are sure to be a favorite for whenever the kids are gathering, or just as an after-school snack.  Presenting foods, especially fruits and vegetables in a fun and creative way encourages kids to try them.
