Tomatoes can be a challenge due to the texture of the insides, with the seeds and the wetness.
One solution is to scoop out the middle and leave just the firmer outer part – which is then like many fruits.
We can add a favourite filling like bacon, cheese or a dip like hummus.
As always, the smaller the better, so if it’s the first attempt, a cherry tomato would be my pick.
Even if our child happily eats tomatoes, serving them with a filling changes things up.
