In celebration of Occupational Therapy Month this April, our weekly recipe submission is a kid-friendly applesauce recipe from Kay. She and her kids made this applesauce for the first time at an Early Family Childhood Education class last summer. She said that it was a lot of fun watching them use an apple peeler/corer and mix the ingredients. She added that the best part was that the kids were able to enjoy food they made themselves!
