FUN-WITH-FRUIT

My friend Kaitra (also Capri's godmother) was just here for a visit. She gave the girls' a super neat toy called 'FUN-WITH-FRUIT, Realistic fruit you can slice an dpeel!) from http://www.smallworldtoys.com/. It has fruit that stays together with velcro and then you take the nice (a bit creepy how realistic the knife actually looks) to cut the fruit the part. You can also peel the banana and the orange! So far, the girls have just loved it!

On the back of the box the toys came it there are some fun fruit facts that I thought I would share with you!

-There are about 7,500 known varieties of apples grown in the world
-Bananas are one of the most popular fruits and are rich in Vitamin C, fiber and potassium
-Encourage fresh fruit over fruit juices, which can be high in added sugar and corn syrup

Also, there is a nice summary of the food groups on the back. It's nice to be reminded of these every once in awhile:

6-11 servings of grain for carbohydrates and vitamin B
3 servings of fruit for vitamins and minerals (apples fit in wonderfully here!)
3 servings of vegetables for fiber
2 servings of dairy for calcium
2 servings of meat, fish, poultry, eggs or nuts for protein
use fats, oils and sweets sparingly
