Why a Baked Apple is Healthy for You

An apple has fiber, which keeps your heart healthy. The two different kinds of fruit also help you get two servings of fruit a day.

For Parents

Baking an apple is a different way to serve a common fruit. It is a healthy sweet snack or dessert that is low in unhealthy fat and calories. Children are more likely to try foods that they have helped prepare. Allow your child to select and wash the apple. Have him place the apple slices in the pan and sprinkle the raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

For something different, you could use pear instead of an apple.
