In Japan, it's very common to eat fruits after a meal as dessert. It's the best "candy from nature," because they come with fiber.
One thing I have learned in our household in Norway - if I leave fruits (say, apple, oranges, kiwi, etc) on the kitchen counter, they will be left untouched. However, if I slice them into "ready to eat pieces" everyone eats fruits!
Fruits can be quite festive dessert, and great way to encourage people to eat more fruits. Let me show you a few tricks with "everyday fruits"!
(Please see slides above.)
I list few of the most commonly available fruits here:
Apple leaf - please refer to "PARTY TRICKS - how to make a leaf with apple" and "How to avoid oxidation - apple."
Orange slice - please refer to "Orange boat - for lunch box"
Strawberry - lovely with marshmallow...
Marshmallow - it gives wonderful accent within fruits, and kids love it!
Melon, water melon, pineapple - whatever available
