Method

  1. Preheat your barbecue or griddle pan. Place 6 wooden skewers into a large roasting tray of cold water to soak (this will stop them from burning).
  2. Peel and core the pineapple, peel and deseed the melon, then chop them both into 3cm chunks. Peel and quarter the kiwis and trim the tops off the strawberries.
  3. Carefully thread the fruit onto the skewers. (Use the grapes to secure any wobbly pieces of fruit as they sit nice and tightly to the skewer.)
  4. Carefully transfer them to the barbecue or griddle pan and cook for 2 or 3 minutes on each side, then slide the fruit off the skewers into a bowl or onto a platter.
  5. Squeeze over the lime juice, tear over the mint leaves, toss it all together and serve!

Tips

Try topping your grilled fruit with exciting toppings – bashed mixed nuts, toasted seeds or coconut flakes for added crunch, a teaspoon of nut butter or a dollop of natural yoghurt or a drizzle of honey.

Jamie wholeheartedly believes that cooking is up there as one of the most valuable skills you can teach a child. Getting kids excited about food, where it comes from and how to cook it, gives them a better chance of being healthier and happier in the long run. When cooking with kids, use your common sense to determine what jobs they can help you with, depending on their age and skill level. It’s always good to start small, with jobs such as mixing and measuring, then progress to elements of a recipe, then go on to slightly trickier techniques over time. The more they cook, the better they’ll get. Make sure you supervise them when using heat or sharp utensils like knives and box graters, and teach them about the importance of washing their hands before they start, and after handling raw meat and fish, as well as other basic hygiene rules. Most of all, have fun with it, and encourage them to give things a go. Note that a child’s portion size will differ depending on their age, gender and physical activity levels.
