Fruit Plate Inspiration...


Fruit always looks more appealing when it has been chopped up and laid out nicely on a plate.

Don't you think this too?

If I mention to my youngest children go grab an apple or an orange for a snack they usually want me to peel it for them or say I'll have one later, if I chop it up all ready for them you can guarantee they will eat it.

How lovely are these fruit plates? 

Full of yumminess, colour and vitamins.

So, so yummy too.

Fruit Plate Inspiration:


Layer It Up:

Layering a few different kind of fruits it can make fruit look more appealing. peel, chop and pop on a plate. Who could refuse this plate of yummy vitamins and colour? Try sprinkling a few different nuts and berries on top.


Heart Shaped Fruits:

We love cutting hearts out of fruits. Watermelon and strawberries being our favourites to make into a heart. Chop a thin slice of watermelon and the cut out some hearts, lovely!! To make hearts out of strawberries I usually pick out the biggest ones and the cut them in half first. Make a pretty pattern on your plate with some blueberries or seasonal berries. Look, a work of art!


Minimal:

Spacing out your fruit or berries to make the plate look inviting. For an extra special treat or dinner party idea, melt a little chocolate and drizzle over the strawberries in zig zag lines to make the plate look great.


Plate Up:

Make a few different plates of fruit up the night before and cover with clingfilm. Perfect for if you're always rushing in the morning. Grab your plate and breakfast is served.


Plan Ahead:

Plan your fruit servings around your day and get them ready and stored in the fridge. Nothing worse than if you buy a pineapple and want to eat it but in a rush. Chopping it up hours before when you have spare time is a lot better. All ready for when you need it, perfect.


Make Fun Fruit:

If you have young children, make fruit fun. Getting creative is so exciting when you're a kid. 


Try Something Different:

How about making up so fruit kebabs? Traffic light fruits? Stacking fruits up? The possibilities are endless!


Get Creative:

Try something new and get all creative. So much fun to be had trying out new things.

I need to go look for some fruit now!!

How about you?
