I was speaking to a friend recently who is sending her child to elementary school for the first time, and she was worried her kiddo may not enjoy a packed lunch. “She’s picky.” This cute and easy lunch idea for kids might save the day!
I get it. Sometimes it can be hard to find something healthier and easy to make that our kids will truly enjoy. If you find yourself out of ideas, consider slicing and dicing up their favorites to make NEW lunch ideas. These sandwich kabobs are not just for kids; you might enjoy them as an adult too!
To get started with these colorful and simple kabobs, gather your ingredients. For this recipe idea, we used bread, ham, cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes, and romaine lettuce. Feel free to get creative and add other toppings or swap out the lunch meat. Maybe your child prefers pepperoni and mozzarella cheese and salami or turkey and swiss cheese.
