Lunchbox Treat: Hearts & Stars
By Cheryl Tallman, www.FreshBaby.com
Strawberries have a wonderful heart shape with the nutritional value that lives up to its shape. That’s right – they’re heart healthy! Starfruit’s cookie cutter “star” shape offers instant fun and a good amount of vitamin C. If you’ve never tasted starfruit its flavor is like a cross between an apple and a strawberry – Yum!
Combine these two fruits for a terrific lunchbox surprise for your Super Star student! A little squeeze of lime juice will keep this fruit salad fresh until it’s ready to eat.
Choosing Starfruit and Strawberries at the market:
- Also called Carambola, choose starfruit with glossy yellow skin with brown spots along the ridges (this indicates sugar development).
- Select strawberries that have a bright red color, a natural shine and fresh-looking green caps.
