It feels like just yesterday that we were running through the strawberry patch, but now it’s blueberry season. There’s absolutely nothing better than freshly picked blueberries in August. (Except maybe freshly picked raspberries — yum!) Here's a list of pick-your-own blueberry spots from our Family Resource Guide.

When you’re done picking, it’s tempting to eat the whole flat of berries just as they are, to savor their summer sweetness. But blueberries are delicious eaten all kinds of ways: in pancakes, muffins, pie, jam, popsicles, or frozen and saved for the winter. Here’s a simple recipe to make with your little ones that can be customized to fit whatever you’ve got in the fridge:

Summer Berry Parfait

- Yogurt
- Berries
- Granola
- Optional: nuts, honey/maple syrup, other fruits

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of yogurt into the bottom of a clear, tall glass. Layer 1-2 tablespoons of granola over the yogurt, then top with a handful of fresh berries. Repeat layering and add honey or maple syrup to taste.
