St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. Get in the spirit of this fun holiday by making these Rainbow Fruit Skewers for your kids, or even with your kids.
A few years back I just made a big platter of fruit shaped into a rainbow, for my kids and some kids I babysat for. While it was certainly a hit with them, it was difficult to accurately bolus C for carbs- I just had to SWAG it.
I figured there had to be a better way to go about this and so this time around I made Rainbow Fruit Skewers. Just calculate carbs for your fruit before assembling onto a skewer and it’s the perfect finger food snack, in a nice little individual portion.
These would be great to make for a classroom treat, a snack, or you could throw one in your kid’s lunch for a fun St. Patty’s Day treat. It’s an easy, fun, nutritious, and delicious idea for the little leprechaun’s in your life.
