Fruitilicious: keep fruit interesting
Summer is creeping closer and closer to an end, but before we say hello to Autumn and, in many places welcome the cooler weather, I want to bring you a collection of fantastic fruit treats you can take to that last BBQ or picnic before the warmer weather says “peace out”. Depending on my kids’ mood, fruit is either a treat or something that turns their nose up when I offer the list of options at snack time. It really is hit and miss. But one thing I have found, is that if I keep it interesting and keep ‘em guessing, sometimes battle between healthy food and kids is a little easier.
Here are some great ideas to keep fruit interesting at your place.
Two words. Fruit. Pizza. Yes, that’s what I said! It’s a stroke of genius from cookingclassy.com, and yes, it does taste as good as it sounds.
