Fruit kebabs

A fun and colourful way to have fruit. You can use whatever's in season.

Fruit kebabs

Method

  1. Cut all large fruit into chunks or slices (let the age of the children guide the size you make them).
  2. When using banana, place the lemon juice in a bowl and toss the banana pieces through to coat them. This helps prevent browning.
  3. Insert all fruit onto the skewers.

This recipe makes 1 skewer per serve.
