Olympic fruit platter

If you’re loving watching the Olympics and can tear yourself away from the television, why not make this easy fruit platter for your munchkin? I can imagine having fun with older kids, first finding fruit in the five different colours and then preparing it together. I’m sure you’ll be better than me at linking your rings (I just gave up!).

The five rings represent the five continents. The five colours of the rings (blue, black, red, yellow and green) plus the background colour of white, come from the colours of the flags of the countries which competed in the first modern games.

I used blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, bananas and kiwi, but of course there are lots of other possibilities. You could also try a mixed fruit and vegetable platter.

For a less healthy treat, you can try my Olympic biscuits using coloured sugar on Mindful Mum; a nice cooking activity to do together with older little ones.
