Our festive frozen grapes are a refreshing addition (and very very simple if you are need a last minute ‘bring a plate‘ idea) to your Christmas day menu.  Frozen fruit like these or our watermelon icy poles are fun way to keep the kids cool on a hot Christmas (or any summer’s) day. Be mindful that grapes can cause a choking risk to small children, only serve these to older children and always supervise while eating.

Safety note: skewers may be too sharp for young toddlers, you can use paddle pop sticks or serve grapes halved separately.

Nutrition Note: To keep cool and hydrated on Christmas Day – keep the kids drink bottles topped up with cool water and offer fresh fruit instead of juice or soft drinks.

    It’s a pity you suggest we buy only “seedless” grapes. I wish my food producers were more interested in healthy environmentally-responsible food, than in making it nice-looking. Babies don’t choke on grape seeds, and they are good for you, and then you can choose a really good variety of grapes, instead of choosing *the* seedless one.

      Many children don’t enjoy the biter seeds in grapes, plus they are frozen. That’s the reason why we specified seedless. If your child does like the seeds you are more than welcome to use them :) Ax
