Buying fruit and bringing it home won't make teens eat it. I got tired of throwing away fruit that spoiled in the refrigerator/icebox so I filled a bowl of fruit and placed it in the center of the kitchen table. Within half an hour there was fruit missing. Teens will eat it if it's easy to grab and run.
Fill a large bowl with apples, clementines, nectarines and plums it makes a beautiful centerpiece and also a healthy after school snack.
Keep something healthy and convenient at the front of your fridge so you can grab it quickly when you need something NOW. Whether you pre-package your own portions or use grocery store convenience foods like carrot snack packs, it will make a huge difference in what you eat if it's something easy for you to grab.
You can pre-portion salad into bowls, pre-cut vegetables for snacking, and pre-portion nuts so you don't overdo it.
