For the last few months, I’ve been dealing with a challenge just about every parent has to deal with at some point: getting Alex to eat his fruit and veggies. He’s consistently rejected fresh, raw apple, so I came up with this recipe for a lightly cooked apple, which he loves. You can eat it as is, or mix it with some yogurt, or bake the mixture in a baking dish with a streusel or crumble topping for a yummy dessert.
4 apples, peeled and diced (I like to use Gala apples)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes or until apple is the desired consistency.
NOTE: If you eat a lot of apples, consider buying organic because apples are one fruit that retain a lot of pesticides.
