Now we are finally in September and the days are getting colder, we are very excited to start making use of all the delicious autumn produce! One of the many reasons the Wild Child Kitchen team love eating seasonally is because what is produced here in the UK at one time provides us with the nutrients we need during that season at that time.
Crunchy, sweet, juicy apples are adored by children across the nation. Delicious on their own as a snack but also such a versatile ingredient, they are full of flavour and nutrients. A great source of phytonutrients and antioxidants, apples are believed to reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Apples are also great for little foodies with bad tummies, thanks to its high fibre content.
