The Summer Fruit Bowl

One of the things I love most about summer is the incredible abundance of fruit. So many different shapes and colors! First come the strawberries, their bright red skin a welcome sight after the winter months. Then come the cherries, and peaches, the melons, and the myriad berries! Oh how I love them all! This summer I decided to really celebrate the season’s fruit with a daily fruit bowl.

I found a lovely bowl, a cast off from a neighbor but a treasure to me. Every morning the children pick out three or four types of fruit and we fill the bowl.

My five year old is in charge of washing the fruit and the 12 year old helps cut and peel that days selections. I have found that if I include the children in our food prep they are way more likely to eat what is made! The beautiful bowl is put into the fridge to chill the fruit.

On the kitchen table, I have a tray outfitted with bowls, spoons, and pretty napkins. The children are able to help themselves through out the day. A perfect snack for the hot days of summer!

Ooh, Shannon… there’s nothing like fruit! Great idea to prepare a fruit bowl for the day and let the children help themselves… I’m going to do this for sure! Sometimes, it’s the simple ideas that are the best.

Blessings and magic,
