Ingredients - Serves 6 Adults

  • 2 medium kiwis
  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 medium pear
  • 1 medium banana
  • Small bunch of grapes - approx. 100g / 3½ oz.
  • ½ punnet of strawberries - approx. 100g / 3½ oz.
  • 6 large oranges - 1 per person
  • 1 x 125g pot of low-fat fruit yoghurt
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice

Method

  1. Peel the banana and the kiwis
  2. Chop up kiwis, apples, pears, bananas, grapes into small pieces
  3. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the fruit salad to prevent it turning brown, store in fridge for later

To make the ‘pumpkin’:

  1. Allow one large orange per person and wash under running water
  2. The adult should take a sharp knife and cut the top off the orange so it looks like a small pumpkin with its lid off
  3. Carefully cut around the inside making sure not to damage the outer skin and remove what you can of the flesh; while still having it keep its shape. Put the removed orange in a bowl off to the side
  4. For fun give the empty ‘carved out’ skins to the children.  Using the cake decoration pen allow them to carefully draw on a pumpkin face on to the side of the orange
  5. Gently set aside and allow to dry
  6. Juice half of the removed orange flesh and chop up the other half into smaller pieces and add into the fruit salad, pour the orange juice over and mix fruit
  7. Fill the ‘pumpkins’ with the fruit salad and replace their top
  8. Add a small spoonful of yogurt just before eating
