Kabobs = KABAM!

Grocery shopping lately has me bringing home loads of fresh fruit. I can't resist the cherries, grapes, pineapple, strawberries, and more. With both my first pregnancies fruit was something that ALWAYS tasted good...especially oranges. Lately, I can eat two oranges in about 10 minutes standing in the kitchen around 9:15 at night. And all is right in the world.

Henry my picky eater is less enthused about fruit much of the time. So I found these long skewers and washed up some of the yummy fruit purchases and put them to work.  We used bing cherries that I pitted, orange, grapes, blueberries, and pineapple.

They say that getting kids involved in making the meal will encourage them to try new things. While Henry was making his fruit kabob he tried an orange and "like this mama." And he tried a pineapple, "Like this mama! see!" "watch me!"

So if you have a picky eater...give fruit kabobs a try....or as a matter a fact, throw anything on a sword stick and you might find you have found yourself success with a picky eater!

I love the idea of barbecue skewers. Thanks for the tip. I might as well use this technique of yours for my picky-eaters at home. Thanks again.:-)
