Sliced Apple

I know many people would love to be able to send a sliced apple in their children’s school lunch, but because they will turn brown in a couple hours, most of us don’t do it.  Here is a way to slice an apple and keep it together in a way that will slow down the browning process to allow your child to eat it at lunch.

What you need:

– Clean Apple

– Apple Corer/Slicer

– Rubber Band

What to do:

– Use a apple corer/slicer to core/slice up the apple.

– Keep all the slices (and core) together and secure with a rubber band.

Keeping it together with the rubber band will slow the oxidation process which causes an apple to turn brown.

I know that this will be a hit with my kids as they love apples and it is such a great item to send in their lunch.  Very filling and very good for them.  You can also send a little cup of dip.  Kids LOVE to dip food.  Here is a recipe for an easy Apple Dip you can make at home with cream cheese and brown sugar.

This is also a great idea for picnics, road trips, or just about anytime you need to pack food.  I know you can buy those little bags of apple slices at the store, but I don’t like spending the extra money.  This will work just as well for just the cost of an apple.
