Make Something Fun – and Good – to Eat

When it comes to snacks for kids, it’s tough to compete withsweets. But why not try with these homemade fruit snacks. Afterschool, ask kids to help you make them, and then enjoy eating thesenutritious treats together too.  The cleaning experts at MOLLYMAID suggest that this is a good time to teach kids about cleaningup in the kitchen too.

Funky Fruit:

Choose two fruits that are about the same size (for example, anapple and orange, or an orange and pear). Slice horizontally intothe same number of pieces. Now (here’s the fun part): create funkyfruits by alternately stacking pieces – one slice apple, one sliceorange. Enjoy!

Fruit Kebobs:

Wash and assemble different fruit sucha s grapes, kiwi,pineapple, tangerines and apples. Prepare so they are all the samegeneral size (cut up most of it but leave grapes whole). Threadpieces onto kebob sticks in a colourful patter. Serve with yogurtdip

Fruit Sushi:

Slice a banana into thick pieces. Roll up each piece in fruitleather (like Sun-Rype Fruit to Go). Put each one on its side on aplate and top with grated coconut – and call it sushi!

Fruit Pizza:

Make your favourite sugar cookie dough. Roll it out into a’pizza crust’ an bake it on a cookie sheet. Cool, then top with aselection of fruit: cut up strawberries, kiwis, banana and wholegrapes, raspberries and blueberries. Slice and eat.

Fruit Cones:

Put muffin liners into ice cream cones – and fill with cut-uppieces of melon, blueberries and kiwi. Top with a dollop of whippedcream or frozen yogurt.
