Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Young children (under 4) should not be served food on wooden skewers. Serve the fruit and cheese in a bowl or cup, or create mini-skewers on pretzels.
  • Try different kinds of fruit. Substitute fruit that is in-season such as watermelon or apple chunks.
  • Try different kinds of cheese. Cheddar goes well with fruit but will have a higher fat content.
