Rainbow fruit kabobs are delicious and colorful healthy snack that adults and kids will love!
These rainbow fruit kabobs are so easy to make and so delicious to eat. The colors of the rainbows are such a fun and healthy way to get your kids to eat more fruit! And they make a perfect snack for after school, right before bed, or whenever you want to give your kids something sweet that doesn’t involve brownies, cookies, ice cream, or candy!
It can be hard finding a healthy treat that both my kids and I will love, but these rainbow fruit kabobs are the perfect solution! I even let my 3 year old help me put together some fruit kabobs and he loved helping me with my “recipe” and I loved spending that fun time with him doing something we both loved! His kabobs were a little less organized, but older kids (he’s only 3) will be able to put them in the fun rainbow pattern, and either way you’re getting your kids to make and eat lots of these fun fruit kabob skewers!
For the fruit kabobs you can use any of your favorite fruits that make each of the colors of the rainbow. Here are some ideas for each color!
Red: Raspberries, Strawberries, Watermelon, Seeded Cherries, Red Apples
Orange: Mandarin Orange Slices, Cantaloupe, Mango
Yellow: Pineapple, Peach, Banana
Green: Kiwi, Green Grapes, Green Apples, Honeydew
Blue: Blueberries, Dark Purple/Blue Grapes, Blackberries
Purple: Purple Grapes, Plums
Finish them with a marshmallow cloud if you want, or leave them off if you want too!

Most fruits don’t like to be cut up and prepared ahead of time, they start to lose color, flavor, and moisture. I would just recommend removing the grapes from the vines, rinsing and drying the berries – but don’t remove strawberry stems until just before preparation. Definitely wait until last minute for bananas, they go brown so quickly. Maybe the tangerines and pineapple will be okay peeled ahead of time, but often the pineapple even goes brown. Fruit is just a tender food that loses appeal the longer it sits before serving. Good luck.

Blueberries are so good for you and can help eye sight as can kale and silverbeet. Many thanks for fruit kebabs.-Peggy
