Fruit kebabs

Hey dads, this is a fun way to serve up fruit for the kids, a dipping bowl of yoghurt on the side is also a favorite to have.

1 rockmelon, peeled
A bunch of grapes
1 or 2  punnets of strawberries
1 honeydew melon, peeled
1/2 pineapple, peeled
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup water
1 orange, rind shredded, juiced
1 vanilla bean, halved lengthways
1 punnet of strawberries

Cut all fruit into 3cm cubes. Thread onto skewers. Place onto a plate. Cover and refrigerate until required.

Place sugar, water, orange rind and juice and vanilla bean into a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until sugar has dissolved. Increase heat. Bring to the boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Transfer to a heat-proof jug. Refrigerate until cold.

To serve, arrange skewers on plates. Drizzle with syrup.
