Noah will be in a little program for a few weeks before camp starts, and I have to send him with his lunch each day (I know, when did THIS happen??).

As his picky eating has been well-documented here, you can imagine how stressful this is for me. But one thing I can pretty much guarantee he’ll eat is an apple. Problem is, he likes it cut up – and I couldn’t figure out how to avoid the inevitable brown spots.

Till now.

LOVE this idea from At Home With Real Food. Not only does it prevent browning, Noah thinks it’s a puzzle!

Simply cut up the apple and put it back together, securing with a clean rubber band.

Give it a try – and have a happy Wednesday!
