What do you get when you press an apple through a spiralizer, add some lemon juice, cinnamon raisons and walnuts? A healthy recipe for kids- tasty enough for dessert but nutritious enough for breakfast…Apple Pie “Froodles”. Kids from grades 1-8 of the Eliot School in the North End had a blast making this snack/dessert this week. They loved learning about the benefits that fruits like apples have for our hearts, the way lemon can act as a detoxifier, and the anti-inflammatory properties that cinnamon has – they even enjoyed learning that cinnamon comes from the bark of a tree.

- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
