Fruitcicles

Visually spectacular and perfect for warmer days.

These look visually spectacular if you add lots of different colours and shapes. Most fruits work well so you can’t go wrong: just choose the flavours you and the kids love. Fruitcicles are also a simple way to increase the amount of fruit eaten in a day.
