Healthy Fruit Sweet Treats

What a great idea to give the children a healthy dessert.  For the pirate ship, split a banana sideways and fill with crème fraiche or low fat yoghurt. Place some strawberries and raspberries on top of the crème fraiche for the pirates and finish off with some fruity waves and rice paper pirate flags on sticks.  Add some fruit palm trees made from bananas kiwis and satsumas to the table for an effective healthy treat.

For the princesses, how about some magic wands?  Use kebab sticks, push on fresh blueberries, and top off with a star shaped piece of watermelon.   For the super ambitious you could assemble an amazing looking crown, filled with fresh fruit modelled butterflies and flowers?

  1. Don’t forget that a princess always likes to have tea and cake at her party, or tea and strawberry tarts, which are the typical princess food.
