Kid-Friendly Fruit Kabobs Recipe

Kid-Friendly Fruit Kabobs Recipe

This recipe is part of our family-friendly recipe series, where we try to get kids involved in cooking. Having kids get comfortable in the kitchen is a great way to get them interested in healthy food. The more involved in preparing a healthy meal they are, the more likely they are to eat what they prepare.

Kid-Friendly Fruit SkewersWe had so much fun making these! It was a great activity, allowing us to spend time together, while prepping tomorrow’s snack!

You can swap out the fruit for whatever you happen to have in the fridge, which makes this a super versatile recipe.

If the fruit is soft enough, kids can cut it with a plastic knife, so they can be involved, even in the prep. Let them cut up the fruit, rip the bagel, and have fun sticking each piece on the skewer!
