Bananas win hands down but strawberries are very popular when they are in season.

At the moment, peaches. Big beautiful sweet peaches. I got 2 boxes of them from woolworths for $10($5 each).
Usually it is grapes & bananas followed closely by apples. DH can't eat bananas anymore due to them giving him the shakes.

Raspberries. Sigh. DS2 goes nuts for them.
I love summer and all the gorgeous fruit.

Grapes for one boy and apples for the other one
Bananas and watermelon are shared equally between them!

Currently it is apples. Small child is thrilled that they come in different sizes and can also be cut into different shapes as well as eaten whole.
Normally bananas are a staple though oranges definitely have their moment of glory in the fruit bowl.

Bananas are the staple, but seasonally, cherries are the most popular, followed by raspberries, then strawberries, then grapes.

At the moment grapes and apples.
But when there cheap strawberries and blueberries..
Bananas are another that make a regular appearance

We are all big fruit eaters here.

my kids will only eat apple - so we always have apples apples apples in the fruit bowl. DH and I also consume a fair bit of banana, grapes, watermelon and oranges. I have other stuff too but they are the main ones. I'm always offering my kids to try other fruits and they never want to. I don't understand why they don't like it tbh. Fruit is delicious! If I make pancakes, you can be sure a banana is mashed in and mmmm they think it's a delicious pancake. But they wont eat a banana straight. I can sort of get it. Sometimes I dont like them either. But I still eat 'em!

We go through apples the most of all.
The eldest is addicted to them !
next would be grapes (especially the dark ones) , plums and peaches.

Apples win hands down at our place.
Strawbs, grapes and watermelon are also staples.
DS1 likes the stone fruits best, but they are so hit and miss!
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:00 PM
Strawberries, grapes, apples, watermelon and mandarins are put regulars.
And my DS has just discovered his love of blueberries.
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:15 PM
Mangoes, apples and grapes. Although I don't buy the mangoes too often as I'd need to remortgage to finance the amount my kids would eat if left unsupervised!
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:18 PM
Berries - all kinds! And pink lady apples - the organic ones are heavenly.
Posted 14 February 2013 - 09:23 PM
DH hates fruit so it is me who is the fruit eater in this house. My fave staples usually consist of mango, grapes, strawberries, banana, apple and passionfruit depending on the season. I also like stone fruit but don't buy this often enough.

Green apples win hands down at our place followed by strawberries when they are not hideously expensive otherwise green grapes get a look in.
