Apples reign supreme as kids’ favourite fruit

My dear husband sent me the link to this article, http://www.babwnews.com/2015/09/apples-reign-supreme-as-kids-favorite-fruit/¬†and I must say it made me smile. Apples truly are a gift from nature and to hear that children are still choosing to snack on them is good news. Thinking about apples also brings back happy childhood memories for me. My dad loved eating apples; you could almost say he was obsessed with them. On a fairly regular basis he would come home from the market with boxes of different varieties of apples along with a whole selection of other fruits. Looking back I wonder how we could afford so much fruit and how we got through it all. I also remember driving along in the car with him and he would have several apples that he would manage to eat his way through no matter how short or long the drive. It’s no surprise that I wrote a children’s book titled Albert Apple.
