The apple has always been a quick and healthy snack. Unfortunately, it goes brown very quickly after being cut. Just slap a rubber band on after cutting to avoid any discoloration.
Creating a snack station in your fridge ensures that even if you’re too busy to make something, your kids will always have a place they can go to quickly grab a bite.
