By Tanya Davis | Published Wednesday, December 28, 2011

This week’s focus on Wise County 4-Hers in the foods project showcases a healthier dessert option for the New Year. Lauryn Luttrull, an 11-year-old Decatur 4-Her, earned first place honors in the Intermediate Dessert category with her Berry Dessert Nachos at the recent District 3 4-H Food Show.

This is one of those easy, fruity desserts that will make an impression when you serve it. It’s not overly sweet and a great low-fat dessert option, even for a diabetic meal plan.
