Here is an idea that kids will love when on a road trip: mixed fruit in a jar. Combine any type of cut-up fruit in a jar, chill and toss in the car. A couple hours will give the fruit time to warm and the flavors to blend. The sealed lid keeps everything neat, and the jar provides a nifty container to eat out of. Use any kind of fruit you like. A simple fruit salad served in portable jars. The shaved or flaked coconut holds up better and tastes more like natural coconut than shredded coconut.
