Make this healthful snack for children in honor of Constitution Day. Place an 8x13 plastic tray, plate, or cutting board on a table. In the upper left corner of the plate place 30 blueberries or blackberries in five rows of six berries each. Cut 58 banana slices about -inch thick. Place slices in a bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice to keep slices from getting brown. Toss with a spatula. Assemble the banana slices in rows: three rows of six slices to the right of the blueberries and four rows of ten slices below the blueberries. Finally top each banana slice with one-half of a strawberry (flat side down). Serve and enjoy.
