Apple Delicious Snack Buffet

This is a fun, healthy way to get kids to eat better.  When they have choices they love to try different things.  Also, giving them different varieties of apples to try will let them discover the taste and texture that they really love.  Not everyone loves a Red Delicious or a Granny Smith.  But a child may taste a Gala for the first time and that can become a favorite fruit!

Variety of NC Apples (Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Gala, Pink Lady)
Peanut Butter
Peanuts – chopped
Cheeses (cheddar, Swiss, Muenster)
Any other item that would be great to try with apples


Mix together some fresh lemon juice (2 lemons) and water (1/4 cup).  Slice the apples into 12 slices and coat in the lemon juice mixture.  This will keep them from turning brown.  Chop the peanuts into bite size pieces.  Slice or cube your cheese.  Set it all up in a colorful fun buffet and encourage your guest to try different combinations.
