Next Monday (22nd) we have something exciting coming up! A twitter party hosted together by me and 3 of my fellow bloggers:

Et Speaks from Home (@etspeaksfrom), Red Rose Mummy (@redrosemummy), and The Brick Castle (@thebrickcastle)

SA Fruits have been kind enough to provide us all with a selection of their delicious fruit to try out, and has also sponsored TWO family picnic rucksacks (for 4 people) to give away for our Twitter party!

We will be talking about healthy eating for children and families, different healthy snack ideas and also giving the opportunity to win plenty of extra surprise prizes so we would love it if you join us on twitter at 10.30-11.30 on Monday the 22nd, with #HealthySnackChat.

In our package of South African fruit, we tried a selection of apples, pears and plums. These South African fruits are all available from April til September in supermarkets throughout the UK. You can also have the chance to win mini footballs, frisbees and boomerangs every time you buy South African Fruit! See here for the details.IMG_5740

These fruits were all lovely to eat just as they are. The Royal Gala Apples were very sweet and flavoursome and the Angeleno plums were very tasty and juicy, enjoyed by my children and myself.

We also used the fruit to make a small fruit salad as my 4 year old enjoys chopping the fruits and mixing them in a bowl, it’s a nice activity for him and I find it helps the children to feel really enthusiastic about eating the fruit. We sometimes make fruit kebabs too which is a really simple and fun idea for the children to do with different fruit.IMG_5743IMG_5744

The fruits can also be cooked and used in a variety of different recipes, and there are examples and ideas on their website at www.beautifulcountrybeautifulfruit.co.uk, so why not have a look!
