This is a bit random but I like to put "happy" fruit in my children's lunches. I imagine them at school, opening their lunchboxes and noticing the fruit. I imagine them giving a small grin and shaking their heads thinking about how dorky their mom is but secretly loving the thought of me thinking of them. And how can they resist eating these cute, healthy snacks...aren't they appeeling?
(For the banana drawings, use a toothpick to draw on the surface of the peel. An hour or two later the drawings become dark. For the orange, use a marker to draw directly on the peel.)
