Fresh fruit is best, but frozen and dried fruits also count toward the 1-1/2 cups kids ages 3-6 need a day. If you're using canned, choose a brand with fruit that's packed in natural juice instead of syrup. Juice is popular with kids but lacks the fiber found in whole fruit, so limit kids' juice intake to a half of a cup a day of 100-percent juice.
Ways to do this at mealtime: Add a bowl of fresh fruit to the dinner table. Pack an apple or banana for an on-the-go snack. Sprinkle raisins, dried cranberries, and chopped, dried apricots over oatmeal. Use frozen fruit to make smoothies that you can serve straight from the blender or freeze into popsicles for a sweet treat.
