5 Healthy Foods That Are Fun To Make


Snacks on a Stick

Food on a stick may bring to mind fattening, deep-fried treats at the county fair. But you can also make healthy snacks on a stick. These kabobs are fun to assemble and very portable. Make some in the morning and bring them to work or school for an easy lunch. They don't even require any cooking or grilling. Here are a few ideas for food you can easily skewer:

  • Banana Yogurt Bites -- sliced banana dipped in low-fat yogurt, rolled in granola
  • Italian Hero -- cubed foccacia, turkey pepperoni, cherry tomatoes and low-fat mozzarella
  • Dessert Kabab -- angel food or pound cake cut in fun shapes and strawberries, blueberries and raspberries

If you have leftovers from last night's dinner, try some of these:

  • Chicken Nuggets -- cooked chicken nuggets, broccoli, carrots and low-fat ranch dip
  • Ravioli Meatball -- leftover ravioli, meatballs, summer squash
  • Luau Chicken -- leftover chicken, pineapples, red bell peppers
  • Breakfast Kabab -- leftover French toast, berries or peaches with low-fat syrup dip
