Fruit Kabobs

Encourage your children to eat fruit by designing their own fruit kabob. Choose fruits with different colours and cut them up into different shapes for some additional fun and learning.

Here is what you need:

  • Thin bamboo skewers
  • Watermelon sliced in the shape of triangles
  • Bananas cut up as circles
  • Cantaloupe cut up in squares
  • Kiwis cut up as circles
  • Apples sliced in semi-circles

Place the fruit out on a platter, encourage your children to pick one from each group and simply push it onto the skewer. Talk about the taste, colour and shape of the fruits as they eat.
