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.
