My son loves apples. He’s almost 3. The only problem that I run into is that he loves them so much, he doesn’t realize when he should stop. He wants to eat big apple pieces like his sister who eats a regular apple without problems(even while missing we two front teeth!).
If I served my daughter a whole apple and my son apple slices, he would become so upset.
Everyday I would cut and apple in half and with a knife try to dig out the core and the stems for my son to have the feeling of eating a whole apple and for me to relax that he wasn’t going to eat it core and all. Ugh! I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve almost cut myself or flung apple in my face while doing this!
Enter the the Melon Baller. I finally grabbed my Melon Baller. Now, I honestly don’t remember if I saw someone else doing this on a cooking show, off of Pinterest, Facebook, or out of my own thoughts. But….the bottom line is this is the COOLEST THING EVER!
Here’s how you do it:
I love how I can send a half an apple in my daughter’s lunches too!
I cannot even tell you how many times my kids really want to eat (or have the feeling of eating) a whole apple…,but in reality only want half. I love doing this!
Enjoy Apple Season! Hopefully this trick will come in handy for you!
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
