Toddlers can be surprisingly good at eating fruit and vegetables but as they only eat small portions, you can face a challenge keeping them fresh. Here are a few tips on keeping your fresh produce extra fresh so that your little ones can enjoy a healthy snack on demand:
Melons: they are delicious but can be fiddly to prepare. Cut the whole melon at once and put the chunks you don't eat straight away into an airtight container. Whenever you fancy a snack it's ready prepared for you and will keep for up to 5 days.
Peppers: if you only need a portion of lovely red, green, yellow or orange pepper, keep the seeds, stalk and inner membrane intact and the pepper will stay fresher for longer.
Spinach: if your spinach has gone a bit limp, refresh in ice cold water and it will revive.
Cool food: to cool food quickly, simply place on top of picnic ice blocks and you'll find it cools down much quicker.
Carrots: to stop them going mouldy, wrap in kitchen paper in the fridge and they will keep longer. The kitchen paper soaks up any condensation which is what make the vegetables turn mouldy.
Fruit: apples stay fresher in the fridge, so do tomatoes and broccoli.
Paper bag: keep a paper bag in the bottom of your fridge where you store your fruit and vegetables so any moisture will be soaked up.
