Looking for new ways to get your little ones to eat their daily dose of fruit? Try one of these fun and yummy combos: apple with peanut butter & blackberries; pear & raspberry cream cheese sandwiches; or strawberry, watermelon & banana kebabs.
Core apple and slice into rounds, approximately 3-5 mm thick. Spread with a dollop of peanut butter and top with a blackberry. Handy hint - If making in advance place the apple slices in a small bowl of cold water with a generous squeeze of lemon juice prior to making, to prevent the apple from discolouring.
Combine the cream cheese, maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add the raspberries and stir to combine. Slice the pear into rounds, approximately 5 mm thick. Place a spoonful of cream cheese mixture onto the larger rounds and top with a smaller pear slice. Dust with cinnamon.
Cut the watermelon into 1.5 cm thick slices. Using as 5 cm star cookie cutter, stamp out eight shapes. If you don’t have cutters, simply cut the watermelon into cubes. Peel and slice the banana into 1 cm thick rounds. Thread two pieces each of the watermelon and strawberries and one piece of banana onto short bamboo skewers.
