Annabel Karmel’s pear, apple, and blueberry crumbles

pearappleblueberrycrumbles-annabelkarmelA fantastic, yummy recipe for little ones who need more fruit in their diets – great for freezing, suitable from 9 months old, makes 4 individual crumbles.

This healthy crumble is full of antioxidants from the blueberries and fibre from the pear and apple.

With my delicious golden crispy topping, it’s an easy way to get your child eating – and enjoying – more fruit.
