Healthy Snack of the Week: Bake an Apple—or Roast a Pear

Apples are good for you and are usually plentiful, so why not turn your everyday apple into a memorable snack?

Try a baked apple.

Most any apple will do, but for best results in the oven look for a Rome, Gala, or Granny Smith.

“Baked fruit can be an excellent substitute for pies and desserts that are often high in fat and sugar,” says Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Wesley Delbridge, national spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. ” It also helps your kids to see that fruit can be fun in many different forms.”
