My kids are fruit addicts so I don't need to disguise their fruit to make it appealing but I would highly recommend trying fruit shapes to make then more appealing to small people - we've made a kiwi turtle , a strawberry & blueberry ladybeetle, pineapple & watermelon hearts, Christmas trees & gingerbread shapes, with … Continue reading Fruit Fun | child friendly
