Are you always asking yourself: “How can I add more fruits into children’s diet?”

Check out a few of the great tips from http://www.choosemyplate.gov/fruits-tips on creative ways to incorporative more fruits into the daily meals and snacks served in your childcare.

General Tips:

  • Refrigerate cut-up fruit to store for later.

  • Buy fresh fruits in season when they may be less expensive and at their peak flavor.

  • Buy fruits that are dried, frozen, and canned (in water or 100% juice) as well as fresh, so that you always have a supply on hand.

  • For fresh fruit salads, mix apples, bananas, or pears with acidic fruits like oranges, pineapple, or lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

For the Best Nutritional Value:

  • Make the most of your choices by using whole or cut-up fruit rather than juice, for the benefits dietary fiber provides.

  • Select fruits with more potassium often, such as bananas, prunes, dried peaches and apricots.

  • Vary your fruit choices. Fruits differ in nutrient content.
