Mini Cinnamon Stackups

Serves 4; 1 waffle and 1/2 cup yogurt per serving

4 4-piece frozen miniwaffles

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 kiwifruit

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Cut each kiwifruit crosswise into six pieces. Cut star fruit crosswise into eight pieces.
