Easy Lunch Kabobs Your Kids Will Want to Eat at School

Easy Lunch Kabobs Your Kids Will Want to Eat at School



Packing lunch for school seems to always be a huge pain for me. It takes a while to pack in the morning when we are already rushing to get out the door. Plus, most of the time the kids come home with half their lunch not eaten.

I especially noticed if I send kids with sandwiches all the bread would be leftover.  What a waste of bread. I started to wonder why do I even bother sending them with sandwiches.

Then one day my mother-in-law made cute kid-friendly kabobs and I realized that was my answer. I think your kids will love these easy-to-make Kabobs for their lunch too.

Check out these kid-friendly back-to-school lunch kabobs. 


How to Make Lunch Kabobs for Kids School Lunch

Need a school lunch your kids will eat? Lunch Kabobs are easy to make and adjust to each child's taste. Your sure to find a combination of meat, cheese, fruits and vegetables to add to the toothpick your kids will love. Plus you can make them ahead for a stress-free morning. The perfect Back to School Lunch idea!

The kabobs for school lunches are very versatile and can be made with a huge variety of items to please any kid. I start out with some type of lunch meat.

Whatever your kids like best and roll it up onto a toothpick or skewer.

Next, I cut up some type of cheese for the other end of the toothpick. I have used cheddar, string cheese, and Babybel cheese.

However, any hard type of cheese will work.

Lastly, I add a fruit or vegetable to the other end of the toothpick. I have used tomatoes, grapes, cuties, cantaloupe, mango.

Basically, whatever I have in the refrigerator the kids will eat and can stay on the toothpick.

The great thing about this school lunch is it is quick and easy to make but it is also fun for the kids to eat.

I can easily customize the kabobs to each kids liking to make sure they eat their lunch. And when the Tupperware comes home empty I know it was a winner.
