Fruity Inspiration.

When Baloo sings ‘The Bare Necessities' in Disney's Jungle Book he dances around the jungle and finds lots of things to eat including coconut, banana , prickly pears, Big paw paws and ants. He even sings about bees making him honey. We decided not to add ants of course and substituted the prickly pears and paw paw for mango, pineapple and orange. Feel free to experiment with your favourite fruit too!
