Honey Citrus fruit dip

Thankfully, getting {my} children to eat fruit has never been a challenge. In fact, the only challenge I face regarding fruit is trying to make an entire bag of any fruit last beyond a 24 hour period – the kids behave as if it (whatever it may be) is the only source of food in the the house or on the face of the earth for that matter!

But, there are some fruits that are still a touch out of their palates preferences.

Fruit Slices

Healthy as they may be, there aren’t too many children who actually enjoy sour fruits, and so many in-season fruits fall into the more pungent category, like blood oranges and grapefruits. Eating with the seasons is such a great way to enjoy the varietal bounties of each individual season, and to help my little ones enjoy the fruits of winter.

Creating interest through making food for themselves can really open up children’s desire to try and and develop their little palates, as they learn to enjoy different flavors. This fruit dip isn’t just for winter fare though, its tasty and versatile qualities make a great accompaniment to any buffet, pot luck, and even summer barbecue. And, again, the challenge may how to make it last (or how much to make!).
