Off For a Dip

If you have children and they are anything like my nipper, they will love the fact that berries of all kinds are sprouting up right now over the summer.

My girl adores strawberries and raspberries. Nothing new or surprising there then but it is a bonus for a parent on the dessert front if your wee ones love fruit. A simple dessert can be knocked up in no time keeping them happy and contented until bed time.

Another thing children like to do is get messy and nothing becomes messier than the fondue concept of dipping solid edible things into warm gooey liquid. It is also highly satisfying. Not just for the children but people like me who should know better.

Melt some chocolate in a low oven (a mix of dark and milk), perhaps stir in a little grated orange, scatter a plate with strawberries and marshmallows, hand out the toothpicks and let the fun begin. I don't even need to give you a recipe. Delicious, simple and something everybody should do at least once a week whilst the berries are here.

I agree David, it is great when your kids love fruit. This is a great idea to make it fun for them.

I usually save this for special occasions. I don't know why because right now it would be the best with all the fresh fruits of the season David. Good call.

Just like Ant & Dec's old Saturday kid's SM:TV morning show, some things are secretly made for adults too! Like your idea David, fun for all.

保健食品顧名思義係指含有特定成分並具調節生理機能或可發揮保健功效之食品;因此,保健食品範圍包括了經衛生署認證之健康食品機能性食品膳食補充食品健康補助食品特殊營養食品等。因此除了衛生署認證的「健康食品」外,凡具有特殊機能的「機能性食品」如運動飲料;補充營養素的「膳食補充品」如綜合維他命;可供營養補給、維持健康狀況或養生的「健康補助食品」,如樟芝與靈芝產品;及因應特殊生理狀況的特殊需求之「特殊營養食品」,如減肥代餐食品等均屬之。因此,所謂保健食品不僅限於通過衛生署認證的「健康食品」,只要具有保健或機能性訴求者均稱之。

大家一談到保健食品就自然而然想到膠囊、放眼市場,具保健或機能性概念且以傳統食品方式呈現的產品已開始慢慢嶄露頭角,如即沖即食大燕麥片、可調節血脂的食用油、可預防蛀牙的口香糖等,除了受到消費者歡迎外,其附加價值也隨之提高了。
