Fruit is an essential component of losing weight after pregnancy, with most healthy eating plans incorporating at least one serving of fruit a day, sometimes more.
Most fruits are naturally low in calories and high in fibre, with many fruits also containing high amounts of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B and other important minerals and antioxidants.
Snacking on fruit is recommended by medical professionals and nutritionists, however sometimes just grabbing a piece of fruit from the fruit bowl can be boring, especially for children.
Choose to be creative with these inventive fruit snack ideas that take common fruits and make them more appealing. The best part is these recipes are easy to prepare, with ingredients you can easily buy on a budget.
