(NAPSA) - There are plenty of ways by which parents can get even the most finicky little eaters to enjoy healthful foods. The key is to select foods that are healthy, fun and delicious.
Try these tips for adding pears-and therefore nutrients like fiber and vitamin C-to your child's diet:
Pear "French Fries"
Using a French fry cutter or a knife, slice firm pears into French fry shapes. Serve these healthy treats raw with yogurt or chocolate sauce for dipping as an after-school or anytime healthy snack.
Pearfect Cheese and Crackers
Top whole grain crackers with sliced pears and low-fat cheese for a slightly sweet snack or lunch.
Place pear chunks in the bottom of a clear glass. Have your child add layers of plain or vanilla low-fat yogurt, granola and more pears for an amazing breakfast or snack.
Pear-kebabs with Strawberry Dipping Sauce
In a small bowl, combine yogurt and strawberry preserves. Set aside.
Alternate pears, bananas, pineapple and strawberries onto the skewers.
Serve fruit with strawberry sauce on the side.
