Fruit kabobs are a fun way to mix up your fruit intake all year and help you get to your goal of 7–10 servings of vegetables and fruit daily. They can be made with any fruit that is in season, so be creative! Use a low fat yogurt for a quick and easy healthy dip.
¾ cup Fresh fruit, in-season 175 mL
1 Tbsp Fruit flavoured, 0 % M.F. yogurt 15 mL

Spring/Summer Kabob: strawberries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, grapes.
