Fruit snacks

Fruit is the ideal healthy snack for students. It’s a terrific sweet snack, yet it’s free of added sugar while being high in fibre and vitamins.

Serving chilled, colourful fresh fruit, peeled or chopped makes it fun and easy to eat. If not sold by the end of the day, serve them frozen the next day or use in muffin recipes!

Compilation of fruit snack ideas

Traffic Lights

Thread cubed kiwi fruit (or honeydew melon), pineapple (or banana) and a strawberry (or watermelon) onto an icy pole stick or a kebab skewer.

Banana Bubbles

Peel bananas, cut into small pieces and thread on an icy pole stick, dip in reduced fat yoghurt and roll in rice bubbles. Serve fresh (make just before serving).

Jelly Jumbles

Put tinned or fresh fruit in small plastic cups, cover in jelly and set. Great combos are green grapes with green jelly; tinned two fruits (in natural juice) with orange jelly or strawberries with red jelly. Serve with a spoon.

Strawberry Alohas

Thread strawberries (minus husk) on an icy pole stick. Can also be served frozen.

Fruity Cones

Cut up fresh fruit in a variety of colours. Drain and place in ice cream cones. Serve immediately to stop the cones going soggy.

Traffic Light Bags

Serve watermelon, honeydew and rockmelon balls in small zip lock bags.

Tinned and dried fruits

Tinned fruit (in natural juice) in single serve tubs are a great, easy snack for the canteen. Dried fruits can be bought in bulk and stored in glass jars on display.
