My Mom recently gave me a helpful tip for cooking with little ones: If they are hungry and simply can’t wait for meal time, give them fruit or veggies as a snack. It helps you to have a little peace while cooking, and they get a good dose of vitamins and fiber in that they might otherwise refuse at meal time.

Serve and enjoy!

Storage for this maple cinnamon fruit salad:

This fruit salad is best when enjoyed fresh, but can be stored in the refrigerator for about 24 hours or so. You may wish to drain off some of the excess liquid from the fruits that release their juices from sitting over time.

I discovered this fruit salad while overseas and we had an abundance of fruit, plain yoghurt and delicious pomegranates. Sadly, we can’t find pomegranates as readily here in our small town in the north east, so I was not able to photograph the fruit salad with them added in. They are a delicious addition though, so feel free to add or keep them out.
