Eating fresh fruit is healthy!  We all know it but do we always eat a lot of it?  The answer (if you are like me) is probably NO!  Here are  some easy tips to get you and your family to eat more healthy fresh fruits.

Snack smarter.  Try to encourage healthy eating with a bowl of fresh mixed berries, sliced bananas, apples, peaches, plums, pears, etc.  Increase the appeal by pairing it with a delicious cashew dip.  Soak cashews in water for about 4 hours, drain, then mix in a blender or food processor with dates, water, and vanilla.  Yummy!

Add a twist to you favorites.  Instead of PB&J try almond butter with date paste.

Mix your own.  Make your own blend of dried fruits, nuts and seeds for home-made trail mix…it’s great on the go!

Even dessert can be better and healthier with some fruit.  Try mixed berries, sliced pineapple or orange slices on your favorite deserts instead of whipped cream.

And don’t forget…healthy snacks do NOT spoil dinner like traditional sweet treats will.  So go ahead and eat more fruit starting NOW.
