    Wanting more ways to incorporate vegetables into your families diet to get your 5+ a day? These rainbow vegetable skewers are an easy way to increase your vegetable intake and kids love them! I try to use as many different coloured veges as possible so I'm getting a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and anti oxidants, we should be loading up on these. Other vegetables that can be added to the kebabs are mushrooms, eggplant, broccoli, beans, pumpkin, sweet potato and brussels sprouts.

    Vegetable skewers are a perfect side dish or snack that are packed with tons of flavour. They can also be cooked on the BBQ.

    Enjoy, L x
