My five year old daughter has been eating apples since she was old enough to chew them safely. We cut slices off the apple and call them apple cookies--they make her smile every time! Those apple cookies are mighty healthy, but use them to scoop up some fruit dip and you have a yummy autumn treat. Of course any fruit will work, but fresh, crisp apples are great such as Golden Delicious, or Fuji.
