Snack Time: Fruit and Cheese Kabobs

This post is a day late… but better late than never right? I like to talk crafty snacks on Wednesdays. Today, I’m gonna talk about protein!

Being the parent of a diabetic child that loves to snack has posed several problems along the way. She wants a snack and to her… snack meant peanut butter crackers or yogurt covered pretzels or even a small bowl of ice cream. After her diagnosis… it was difficult to change the way she looked at snacks.

Over time, we learned that protein is our new best friend. Typically, she can eat enough protein to fill her belly and I don’t have to worry about her carbs and sugars. We love string cheese, scrambled eggs, and rolled up lunch meat.

Today, we’re making fruit and cheese kabobs. These tasty and cute snacks pack a cheesy protein punch along with a healthy dose of fruity sugars.


Wooden or plastic kabob sticks

Cookie Cutters (to shape your cheese)

A nice block of cheese

Your favorite fruits


Simply cut a slice of cheese from the block that will be thick enough to keep it’s shape once you use the cookie cutters. You can also use the cookie cutters to shape melon slices. Slide your fruits and cheeses onto a kabob stick and serve!
