Fruity Fridays are a great way to celebrate and enjoy eating fruit.
Always try to do enough for staff and visitors to join in too.
Choose in-season fruits where possible
Slices of the following
Segments of Oranges and related fruits
Finger Fruits are probably the easiest to provide, prepare and share
Wine making with grapes
Jam making with soft fruits
Pies, tarts and crumbles
Speak to your chef about menus.
Provide raw fruits to match cooked fruit desserts or apple sauce with pork, etc.
This can help to promote appetite as the associations are made.
Some people may feel that they have cooked the items themselves as they recall eating the raw ingredients.
