Getting picky kids to eat fruit is now simple – with these fab mini fresh fruit salad pots. A great lunchbox idea and just the right portion size for kids.
These mini fresh fruit salad pots take no time at all to put together using a selection of seasonal fruits. If there’s a fruit you cannot get fresh then simply substitute a tinned version. Kids really love these in lunchboxes as they’re bright and colourful and taste just delicious.
To make the fresh fruit pots I used a combination of Cantaloupe melon, strawberries, blueberries and green grapes. The lunchbox pots are the Sistema Yogurt to Go pots – they’re fab the tops screw on really tightly so no juice or yogurt leaks out into the lunch bag. And they’re a great size for a portion of fruit salad.
Fab mini fresh fruit salads ideal for kids lunchboxes or as a healthy dessert.
