Super Food Fruit Salad for the Whole Family

There's nothing better than a yummy fruit salad on a warm summer/spring day. Of course it is currently gloomy and raining outside as I'm writing this, but last week was a different story (hope this wet weather will be over soon!). I made this for lunch last week for myself and my little guy. He LOVED it, as did I. It's refreshing, sweet and savory all at the same time. Best of all, it's an easy and healthy lunch, that is jam packed with antioxidants, that you can throw together in 5 minutes! This is for little ones ready for finger food and Mommies and Daddies of all ages. Enjoy!

Here's what you need for 2 to 3 servings:
1 avocado diced
1 cup organic blueberries
2 small black plums diced, remove peel for younger babies (these are the sweeter ones that are red on the inside)
1 to 1 1/2 cup diced watermelon
1 cup diced organic strawberries
1 handful crumbled feta cheese
Juice of half a meyer lemon (the are a little sweeter than regular lemons) or half an orange

Put diced fruit and feta cheese into a large bowl. Squeeze either the orange or meyer lemon over the fruit and toss. Serve, and enjoy! Your little one's portion should be between a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup. You can also puree this (minus the cheese) for your little one 8+ months.
