As fair season is in full swing, you probably know that food is a main attraction. Walk down any food area at a local fair and you are sure to find many options, especially foods that are skewered for easier eating while roaming around. Food on-a-stick has a reputation for being unhealthy. But enjoying a favorite food at the fair is a treat and is all about balance. Knowing that it is fun to eat foods-on-a-stick once in a while, you might be inspired to try a little of that trend at home!
That’s right; you can even have a nutritious breakfast-on-a-stick! Discover how to skewer a healthy, wholesome breakfast-on-a-stick with your Hy-Vee dietitian.
