When we first started our blog we conducted an online survey to food and nutrition professionals to see what we should cover:
Today's entry will show how we always keep fresh fruit on hand and ready to go. Fruit is the best fast food!
Fruit - Ready Now!
The deli drawer in our refrigerator always contains fruit. Right now the choices are apples and clementine oranges.
Watermelon and cherries were featured in our store - and we made a nice platter with those. This goes on the table for an after-school or after-dinner snack.
Grapes and blueberries are ready to go in the refrigerator. And the strawberries keep for up to 5 days when they are hulled and left whole. They are ready for breakfast, snacks and desserts.
Cantaloupe is cut and ready for breakfast. Bananas remain out for grab and go snacks.
The trick is to cut the fruit as soon as you get home from the store. It always gets eaten more readily that way.
