While this isn’t a tip specifically for writers, it IS an idea that makes one say “Why didn’t I think of that?” In an effort to provide our children with healthy options at school, fruit is high on the list of good food. And, most children love apples. What they don’t love is trying to eat around the core. Most children I’ve observed in school take a bite or two from the apple and toss the rest. When we slice the apple into manageable wedges, it turns an unappetizing brown and the apple again gets tossed. You can buy those pre-sliced, ready to eat apples – which are expensive – or try this trick I found on a website.
This is the best use of a rubber band I’ve seen in a long time. Happy Apple Eating!
