Rainbow Salad Kebabs

Young children are so proud when they make these colourful salad kebabs, they go well with dips like humus, tzatziki, peanut butter or make a fun snack by themselves.

Buy some wooden skewers and lots of different fruits and vegetables – anything goes, the trick is to cut the food up in a different way to how you normally would. I’m always surprised at the different foods my cookery class kids will try when they start to thread their wooden sticks, they get quite competitive!

Here are a few suggestions that work really well:

-        Raw cauliflower florets

-        Celery curls

-        Cherry tomatoes

-        Carrots cut into rounds (purple, yellow, white)

-        Avocado chunks

-        Little Gem leaves rolled up

-        Green apple cut into cubes

-        Raw beetroot peeled into thin slices and rolled

-        Colourful radishes

-        Sugar snap peas

-        Raw peas (this requires precision!)

-        Peppers cut into triangles

-        Dried apricots

-        Fennel chunks

-        Raw baby corn

Have fun engaging your toddlers in this fun activity. The more creative you get the better.

Make sure you take a picture of your creations, and the kids enjoying it, and post on Instagram, tagging @kiwioznannies and @confidentkitchen with hashtag #kiwioz
