Fun With Fruits

Everyone knows that fruits are vital for a balanced diet no matter what your age is, as they are jam-packed with the necessary vitamins, minerals and fibre to help you stay fit and healthy.

Ideally, one should consume a wide variety in as many different colours as possible to fully reap the health rewards over time. However, if your kids are not fans of fruits in general, there are simple and fun ways to get them to try and enjoy a bite or two daily. With so many delicious types to pick from in our climate and your nearest FairPrice store, all you have to do is get creative!

As fruits are best taken fresh and raw, besides adding them to other ingredients like cereal, why not get your kids involved in making fruit art on a plate? From banana snails to grape and sliced melon flowers, you are only limited by your imagination.

Through fruit art, not only will you get them to see fruits in a whole new light but also ease them into cultivating good eating habits which are beneficial to them in the long run. After all, as they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
