Parker’s Parfait

Parker and his literacy tutor, John, have been working on Parker’s reading comprehension during our Summer Literacy Tutoring session. What fun they are having! In one recent session, Parker, our resident foodie, got to make a 4th of July Berry Parfait (it’s not only delicious but healthy too)!


Enjoy this treat with your family. See the recipe below.

½ cup of blueberries

½ cup of raspberries

1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt

½ cup of gluten-free granola or cereal



1, 12-ounce clear glass
