If we have a fussy eater comfortable with apples, they are a super versatile fruit and there are many ways we can present them.
Change is critically important if we have a picky eater. It helps to make even favourite foods a little different – preventing boredom, and slowly starting that process of moving to new things.
For sauteed apples I slice and then gently fry in butter (or oil). If your child prefers crunchy foods, you can fry only lightly. If softer may be a positive, then cook for longer.
The apple is perfect to serve on its own, with yoghurt or ice cream, pancakes, or with meat like pork. If it’s the first time our child is eating them cooked like this, I would definitely cut the apple into tiny pieces.
We can also go fancy and add a topping. On these I have:
2. Cinnamon powder
4. Melted chocolate
5. Plain, in mini cubes
