Roll up some winter fruit flavor (RECIPE)

You won’t need to convince kids to try this winter fruit recipe. Packed with nutrition, kiwifruit is the star, but you could add sliced apples, bananas and even grapes for additional flavor and texture. Substitute low-fat Greek yogurt for the cream cheese and get a boost of calcium and protein, suggests Karla Arrigoni, Marshfield Clinic dietitian.
