all details

It's often hard to avoid the junk-food trap when planning a child's birthday party. Try placing a few healthy alternatives on the table - especially some disguised as junk - and watch the kids zoom in like a swarm of bees.

Ingredients

  • 12 wooden skewers
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled
  • 2 large oranges, peeled
  • 2 large bananas, peeled
  • 250g small strawberries, hulled
  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup vanilla yoghurt

Method

Soak skewers in cold water for 20-30 minutes. Cut mango and oranges into 3cm chunks. Cut bananas into 3cm slices. Thread fruit onto skewers, alternating the varieties, and place on an oven tray. Combine butter, lime juice and honey in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until butter has melted and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture over fruit, turning to coat.

Cook skewers on a lightly greased barbecue or grill plate until warm.

Cool and serve with yoghurt.
