I love to serve a fresh fruit platter or fruit salad at dessert. It’s like fruits are the candy that God invented. That must be why it’s so much easier to get kids to eat fruit as opposed to vegetables.
Some of our favorite dishes with fresh fruit:
- Baked Pears with Ginger Crumble
- Pancakes with Apples and Whipped Maple Butter
- Orchard Chicken Salad
- Red, White, and Blue Trifle
Fruit is so good. It could almost replace chocolate.
Del Monte Fresh Produce
Del Monte Fresh Produce is currently holding its second annual Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms contest which awards teachers across North America with cash and fresh fruit. The program is designed to help support teachers and to help educate kids about eating healthy.
Teachers can enter the competition by applying online and writing a short essay explaining how they incorporate healthy eating into their lesson plans. Every Monday fans can vote for their favorite teacher. Winners will receive “cash for classrooms” as well as free fruit to share with their students. Now, that’s pretty sweet. Give an apple to a teacher?
Head here for more details, to enter, and to vote.
