Fruit Kabobs are so easy to prepare and are full of colours, a delight for children. Bursting with vitamins, they are the perfect healthy snack and a fun way of integrating fruits into the kids’ diets. I have chosen strawberries for their vibrant colour, grapes for their crispness, and peach and melon for their sweetness and juiciness. Kabob is the perfect representation of a Middle Eastern dish; however, it is usually used with beef or chicken. These fruit kabobs can be served alongside chia pudding, adding additional benefiting nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and calcium.
