Recipes range from rainbow cake to rainbow spaghetti. But for something simple, try out rainbow fruit skewers. Kids can get a summery treat and celebrate Pride at the same time. Even if your children are picky eaters, they’ll probably find something to like among these options:
Red: strawberries, cherries, red apples
Orange: mangos, oranges
Yellow: pineapple, banana slices, yellow pears
Green: kiwi, green apple, green grapes
Purple: grapes, plums, blackberries
As you make and eat your food, you can teach your kids about the meaning and history of Pride flags. On the Gilbert Baker Foundation’s website, you can read about how Baker created the first rainbow flag and hear from the founders of a variety of flags in a virtual exhibit.
