Eat Well: Apples to Apples

The following post was written by my mom, WWW. Thanks, Mom!
I totally get why kids balk at cut-up apples that have turned brown in their lunches because when I was little, I turned my nose up at the sight. When my kids were little, someone told me to sprinkle the apple slices with cinnamon so that they couldn’t tell that they went brown, which is kind of an ingenious idea and works if your kids like cinnamon. But they kind of look gross and the juice comes out of them a bit so it might be unappealing to most kids.

The other day, one of my friends shared this video on Facebook and I wanted to share it with you all because it is awesome and I wish I had known about it when my kids were young. All you need is a knife to cut up the apple and a rubber band after its cut…no plastic bag needed.

I tried it the other day when I brought an apple with me to work for a snack, and I thought, “Wow… this is totally a fun way to have an apple! I would have LOVED this when I was a kid!”

So…here it is. A totally awesome and easy way to cut up an apple and keep it so that it won’t turn brown.


ED: Rebecca, here. I tried it, too and IT TOTALLY WORKS GO, TEAM!
