These Tropical Breakfast Skewers are a perfect way to start the day with a blast of sunshine.

In my weekly newsletter I answer readers’ questions and share tips and ideas with you to help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table with family and friends. Don’t miss it! Subscribe here:

I find it challenging to come up with healthy and filling breakfasts that my kids love to eat and that are quick to throw together in the morning. These tropical breakfast skewers are perfect for a quick, tasty and sunny start to the day.

They have health whole grains, protein and fruit. And best of all, my kids love them.

To make things quicker in the morning, cut up the fruit the night before and mix it with the lime juice. You can also make the peanut butter and coconut mixture the night before so it’s ready to spread on the waffles before cutting and threading onto skewers. If you’re in a real hurry, the skewers turn into a portable breakfast to have on the go. Just warn your kids to be careful because the skewers are pointy!

Why is my Tropical Breakfast Skewers recipe over at the Produce for Kids site? Last year, Produce for Kids and I worked together to come up with family-friendly healthy recipes. I developed 7 recipes for them and photographed those and a whole bunch more. This year we’re teaming up again with another round of healthy recipes to share with you. I’ll be telling you all about these new recipes in the weeks ahead.

Produce for Kids is a healthy family resource that offers meal planning tools and healthy recipes for your family. All of the recipes are approved by a registered dietitian for containing all the nutrients your kids need (and not too much of the things they don’t). All nutritional info for each recipe is given as well.
