This recipe for fruit kabobs is a rainbow of fruit served on skewers with a yogurt dipping sauce. Plus today I’m talking about keeping kids healthy with probiotics!
This post is all about the kids! I’ve mentioned before that I have three girls, and I am am very proactive in trying to help them stay healthy. I keep my kids healthy with everything from feeding them nutritious snacks like these fruit kabobs, to giving them probiotics. I recently discovered SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete gummies, and have been giving them to the girls to promote good gut bacteria, digestive health, and to support their immune systems. As we head into cold and flu season, it’s more important than ever that we take whatever measures we can to stay healthy!
So let’s talk about these SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete gummies. First of all, my kids loved the grape flavor, which is always super important! They think of these gummies as a treat, while I love that they’re getting 4 billion CFUs per serving, as well as the clinically-proven Wellmune® prebiotic immune support*. These gummies contain four times more CFUs than other childen’s probiotic gummy products. I also love that these gummies are allergy friendly and do not contain any synthetic colors, artificial flavors, or artificial preservatives.
A healthy gut and immune system pairs hand in hand with a healthy diet! I’m always looking for ways to create healthy snacks that the kids will love, and these fruit kabobs definitely fit the bill. I picked up these decorative skewers at a party supply store; if you’re serving these to young kids, you can simply cut off the pointed end with kitchen shears. I like to put a rainbow of fruit on these skewers; in this case I used raspberries, clementine oranges, pineapple, kiwi and grapes. I used a small metal cookie cutter to cut the kiwis into fun shapes, but that’s completely optional. Other great choices would be strawberries, blueberries, bananas, green grapes, or even melon!
I serve these fruit kabobs with a simple dip of vanilla yogurt, topped with rainbow sprinkles for good measure. I’ve found my girls will eat anything if it involves sprinkles! These fruit skewers are also perfect for parties; I served them for my youngest daughter’s birthday and they were a huge hit.
