If you are looking for a festive healthy plate to bring along to a playgroup morning tea or work Christmas party why not give this simple Christmas tree fruit platter a go. It is so simple to prepare and a healthy option for the kids. It could easily be altered to contain fruit that is in season.

Ingredients:
– approximately 5 kiwifruit
– 1 slice of pineapple
– 1 punnet of blueberries
– 1 punnet of strawberries

Method:
1. Slice 4 kiwifruit into thick slices lengthwise. Arrange on a platter like a pyramid starting with 1 slice at the top until it resembles a Christmas tree shape. Cut the top and bottom off the last kiwifruit then slice in half. Place one half of the kiwifruit at the bottom of the kiwifruit tree to look like a tree trunk.
2. Cut the top off strawberries and slice into halves. Place these on top of the kiwifruit to look like decorations on a Christmas tree. Do the same with blueberries.
3. Cut a small piece of pineapple into a star shape and place at the top of the kiwifruit Christmas tree. Serve.
