HOLIDAY SNACK TIME – LA MERENDA DELLE FESTE !
Recipe n. 30
…so your kids are not big fruit eaters ? Well, they are not alone. Many kids would rather choose a pre-packaged snack loaded with sugar and many other bad ingredients. A while ago I did an experiment with my younger child, who was often pushing his bowl full of fresh fruit back at me. Sometimes adding a little something to the exact same fruit you offered before will trick them and make the snack more appealing .
APPLE with CINNAMON
1 Apple peeled and sliced
1 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon Juice
2 tsps of cinnamon powder
Coat the apple slices with the lemon juice first, then sprinkle with cinnamon and mix well.
ORANGE with SHREDDED COCONUT
1 Orange peeled and cut in 3/4 to 1 inch pieces
3 to 4 Tbsps shredded coconut
Sprinkle the orange pieces with the shredded coconut and serve.
