Squirt fruit juice on them, apple, orange or lemon. It stops the oxidisation.

Ahh great - thank You!
Silly question but would it taste too 'sour' for a 3 year old?

I find using really sharp kitchen knife helps.

I use apple juice as (a) normally have this (B) my dc hates lemon (c) there is a lot more in the box so you can cover fruit etc (you can water it down a bit

My mum used to use orange juice and honey in a fruit salad. Bloody amazing, just don’t put bananas in.
