Why Should You Serve Fruit Desserts?

We don’t even have to talk about flavor, but let’s. Just for a second. Because fruit is DELICIOUS. We use the term “nature’s candy” with our kids because a good piece of fruit has all the sweetness and kid-appeal you can expect from something that comes in a wrapper.

Unlike those wrapper-bound treats, fruit desserts come with a ton of beneficial extras, in the form of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants that promote health.

Serving fruit for dessert also sends a message to kids that fruit has a place in our normal every day meals, and in a variety of ways.

Last of all, since fruits are so delicious in their natural state, desserts that feature them can be incredibly simple to make. So hop on the fruit dessert train with us!
