Kid Friendly Fruit Recipes

Nothing inspires kids to eat fruit faster than a refreshing cold drink or fruit sherbet or sorbet. You can just add a bowl of fresh fruit salad to a meal to create the perfect finishing touch. Look for fruit that is undamaged. Choose fruit that is in season and at the height of ripeness to get the best tasting fruit.
