School Lunch Ideas #2: Fruit Kabobs

My Kid loves fruit.  Won’t eat a vegetable to save his life, but luckily, he loves a variety fruits.  Which means we buy a variety of fruits each week.  Play the hand you’re dealt, I say!  It also means by the end of the week, we have lots of random fruit pieces left… and usually not enough of any one type to fill a lunch container.  These fruit kabobs are the perfect way to use up those last bits of fruit.

In this case, I had enough to make 5 fruit kabobs.  I varied the pattern a bit for visual interest.  Strange But True Side Note:  one thing I’ve noticed is that my guy doesn’t like to eat a lot of the same thing… even things he likes.  So having different shapes of the same thing helps him alot!   I have one of those Pop Chef fruit popper thingies (to make your own Edible Arrangements) and it does work pretty slick to make the shapes quickly, but small cookie cutters would work fine, too… as would a paring knife. 😉

Slide the fruit pieces onto a popsicle stick or other small skewer (about 3″ – 4″ long) to make each kabob and that’s it!  If your stick has a sharp end you can either cover it with a grape, or simply cut it blunt with a kitchen shears.

These fruit kabobs are also the perfect way to add a little something fresh to our pre-packaged weak moments. (Or in our case, Special Occasion moments.)
