Just about any fruit can work for this recipe, so try fruit that is fresh and in season. Here are a few ideas for fruits that are easy for children to skewer.

  • 2 pints fresh strawberries
  • 2 bunches seedless grapes
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 24 6-inch bamboo skewers

Adult Preparation

Cut cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Cut cantaloupe into squares or scoop into melon balls.


  1. Alternating the fruits, thread them onto bamboo skewers. Place about 5 pieces of fruit per kebob.
  2. Children should select their fruit. Encourage them to try at least 2 different types!
  3. Optional: Serve the fruit kabobs with Spiced Yogurt Topping (see page 20 for recipe).


Experiment and be creative with different types of "bugs", "logs", and spreads! Try craisins or golden raisins as "bugs", carrot or jicima sticks as "logs", and peanut butter or hummus as spreads- mix and match!
