If you are at all like me you are very conscious about what your kids are eating. I am fortunate in that I have never had to force feed my sons fruit (other foods i.e. veggies and meats are another matter) but I still like to make sure that I make the experience "fun". Now "fun" in absolutely no way means playing with their food, although we are experiencing a battle of wills currently, above is an example of how I like to approach things.
These Melon Suckers took 3 minutes to create. I have a million cookie cutters but for obvious reasons it was the hearts that we chose today. I personally use sucker sticks but popsicle sticks are just as good and you can work with many fruits to create these suckers.
Valentine Note....strawberries when halved vertically look like hearts.
