Modifications

  • Break pitas in half again (so they are in quarters) so kids can try different fruity combinations!
  • If peaches aren't in season or you can't find them at your grocery store, substitute with extra apples and bananas!
  • Warm pitas in the microwave for about 10 seconds to make them more flexible.
