    Roxanne Moore from Sodexo and helper, Elise, explain how to make fruit tarts as an easy way to incorporate fruit into your diet.

    Roxanne Moore: Hey, I am Roxanne Moore from Sodexo and with me is Elise and together we are going to be cooking up something thats sleek but nutritious. So tell me Elise, what we are making today?

    Elise: Fresh fruit tart.

    Roxanne Moore: So what make this recipe so healthy?

    Elise: Many of the ingredients are a great source of fiber.

    Roxanne Moore: Fantastic! And you know fibers are really important because it helps to keep your digestive system healthy and it can also help to lower your cholesterol. So what do we need to do to get started?

    Elise: Can you please preheat the oven at 350 degrees?

    Roxanne Moore: Sure! And I am glad you asked, because an adult should really help out to forge appliances in the kitchen.

    Elise: Next we need to slice the crust of six slices of whole wheat bread, then you take the bread and flatten it with a rolling pin. Once flattened, place the bread on a baking sheet and bake until crisp for about 10 minutes.

    Now mix together 4 ounces of reduced-fat cream cheese and with 1 tablespoons of skim milk with a fork until smooth. This cream cheese is room temperature, so its easy to work with. Then stir in 2 tablespoons honey and teaspoon vanilla. Then spread a generous tablespoon of the cream cheese mix on each piece of cold bread. Place about 1/3 cup of fruit on each tart.

    Roxanne Moore: That was really simple. Good job Elise. You know, these fresh fruit tarts are excellent source of fiber because of the whole wheat bread and the verity of different fruits that we have used. Because of the fruit, they are also great source of vitamin C.

    Now you can also use different types of seasonal fresh produce, other than the ones we have used here today. So we hope you too will enjoy this fresh fruit tarts in your home.
