We all have heard this proverb “Health is Wealth”. But how much do we really take care of our health in the real sense. Specially after giving a birth to a baby our lives focus is on the kid, family, job, sleepless nights etc etc. […]
As a kid, I loved cherries simply because of it’s bright red colour. And as I grew old I enjoyed it in cakes and had a special love for this fruit. It’s very rare kids don’t like cherries but as we all know some kids can get really fussy and for them I am sharing some Fun Food Ideas with Cherries for kids.
The goodness of Cherries
These little fruits manage to pack in a lot of important nutrients. These super healthy snacks contain ample calcium for a growing baby’s bones. They are also full of antioxidants to boost baby’s immune system (that’s what gives cherries their vibrant red colour), vitamin C, iron and potassium.
How to Choose Cherries
Cherries are a very delicate fruit, it is important to always inspect before purchasing. Look for bright, smooth fruits that are unblemished and shiny. A general rule is the darker the cherry, the sweeter it tastes.

FUN FOOD IDEAS WITH CHERRIES FOR KIDS
