My little guy has been sick a couple of times since starting preschool this year. Simple foods like these Apple Slices with Dusted Cinnamon and Honey are a life savor. Making apples into a beautiful flower display makes simple foods whimsical, also never fails to put a smile on my little ones face. Maxwell opts out on eating the parsley, but hey I get it, I prefer my parsley topped on Bacon Mac and Cheese too.
We all know when our children are sick it can be challenging to get them to eat anything. This snack my son considers a fun “treat” that he can handle eating even when his throat is not feeling the greatest. I love all the health benefits the honey (great for sore throat) and cinnamon (anti inflammatory properties) provides, also can’t forget that punch of vitamin C from the apple slices. All around this is a great snack for anytime, but especially around times when the kids are not feeling their best.
