Salad Skewers

Simple, Kid Friendly Salads

These salad skewers just sing summer. A take on a classic caprese salad combination but just prepared in a  really fun way that gets children hands on and involved with the food. Food, cooking and eating is a multi-sensory experience and by allowing children to touch, smell, feel and play with their food they will become less fearless of new foods. Also when they construct these salad skewers themselves they are far more likely to give them a go !

What You'll Need

Spinach leaves

Basil leaves


Piccolo tomatoes 

Mini mozzarella balls 

Balsamic glaze 



Chopping board


How to Do It

Fun Time

  1. 1Get some skewers or lollipop sticks and get the kids to create their own salad skewers from a collection of delicious ingredients that work together. Trust me on the combinations. - any variations works brilliantly.

    Strawberry & basil - a great combination.
    Strawberry, mozzarella and spinach - another fab combination.
    Drizzle with a little pesto or sweet balsamic glaze to finish.
