The red, white, and blueberry fruit salad is perfect for your children for your memorial day festivities. Many people celebrate with barbecues and parties. Oftentimes at barbecues we fill ourselves with food that can be unhealthy, this fruit salad is the perfect option to compliment your meal. Your children will love this sweet and healthy treat, and they can help you make it which is a bonus. You can teach your children the significance of this holiday while you make the fruit salad. Memorial day is a day of remembrance where we pay homage to our ancestors, fallen family members, and loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
