With three young boys who are demanding sweets and treats constantly, Fanny Naritama, Director of Creative Services, made her own homemade popsicles to ensure her kids are eating healthy snacks. Unlike the typical store-bought snacks, Fanny’s popsicles are made of all natural ingredients, no preservatives and no artificial food coloring. Because the popsicles are so healthy, she feels safe giving them to her kids any time they ask for them!

- 1 3/4 cup kiwi puree

- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 Tbsp sugar
