Martin's Super Markets is now a supporter of the Kids Cook Monday initiative. This initiative encourages families to cook and eat together - the more frequently, the better! There have been numerous studies with evidence that links family dinners to healthier life choices. Research has shown that kids who eat family dinners regularly get better grades in school and are less likely to be obese.

The Kids Cook Monday website offers a library of recipes that are easy for the whole family to follow. They break up the recipe into appropriate tasks for children, adults, and/or tasks to complete together. Their website also offers great conversational starters for the dinner table!

Martin’s Super Markets Kids Club and Kids Cook Monday will be partnering up to provide a recipe on the chosen produce item of the month.

July's Item: Nectarine - grill your nectarine in our Grilled Stone Fruit Salad!
June's Item & Recipe! SunGold Kiwifruit

Tropical Mango and SunGold Kiwifruit Popsicle
For Mango Kiwi Fruit Layer:
2 cups fresh mango, peeled and chopped, thawed if using frozen
1 SunGold kiwi fruit, peeled
juice of 1/2 a lime

For Greek Yogurt Layer:
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1 drop liquid Stevia
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Mango Kiwi Fruit Layer:
Using an immersion blender in a medium bowl or a regular blender, blend together the kiwifruit, lime juice and mango into a smooth puree. Assemble popsicle trays and spoon mango-kiwi puree into six popsicle molds about 3/4 full. After all popsicle molds have been filled with the puree, gently tap the popsicle tray against the counter to remove air bubbles. Freeze for at least one hour.

For Greek Yogurt Layer:
In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, almond milk, stevia, and vanilla extract. Remove popsicle trays from the freezer and immediately fill the mold with the Greek yogurt mixture to the top. Snap on the tray lid and insert wooden popsicle handles into each popsicle. Freeze for 2-3 hours. Popsicles are ready when fully frozen. Remove from trays and enjoy!
