Kid-friendly lunch kabobs are filled with savory meats and fresh veggies. They’re perfect for parties, BBQs, Lunches and more!
I love quick and easy lunches like Ultimate grilled cheese and Crispy chicken tenders. Lunch kabobs are another easy, fun go-to meal. I’m always looking for new Lunch box ideas.
Fun & Easy Lunch
We love dessert kabobs, or anything that is fun to eat. They are so fun and simple—a great way to change things up. I may even go so far as to say my kids are more willing to eat things when they’re on a stick!
We’ve had all sorts of fruits and treats on kabobs over the last few years, but I realized we’ve never made anything a little savory that was kid-friendly. Yes, we’ve made skewers for the hubby and myself with meat and veggies, but the kids weren’t interested in those (even though they’re our favorite!)
I thought I’d try a lunch meat and veggie version, and it was a hit!! I left off the bread for these pictures, but think cute squares of sourdough or Italian bread would be a great addition to these lunch Kabobs.
These kabobs are perfect for any party or shower. In fact, I was just telling the hubby that it would be so fun to have a group date at our house for a “FantaSTICK date night”. The theme would be skewers and everyone would have to bring a different type of skewer to share (fruit, veggie, meat, dessert).
HOW TO MAKE
These are beyond easy to make. Just layer and repeat!
PREP. Get all ingredients out in bowls.
LAYER. Layer ingredients on skewers as desired making sure to add ones that will help keep everything on for the top and bottom (the cherry tomatoes and cheese cubes worked perfect!)
SERVE. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Variations + Storing
Want to change it up? Here are a few ideas:
- Pepperoni pizza – Mozzarella, pepperoni, cherry tomatoes
- Chicken quesadilla – Tortilla pieces, chicken, cheddar cheese
- BLT – Bacon, tomatoes, cheese cubes, cucumbers
- Salami Caprese – Salami, mozzarella cheese, cherry tomato
STORE the leftovers on or off of the skewer. Taking the ingredients off the skewers allows you to store like-ingredients together and prevent condensation from forming and ruining your ingredients.
To send lunch kabobs to school, line the ingredients up in the Tupperware to make them look like a kabob (schools may not approve of skewers).

These are absolutely genius!! I love them! My kids would totally dig these for summer lunches!
Thank you, Lisa!! My kids loved them too, but I admit I was the one downing them. They were just too cute not to eat. 😉 Thanks for stopping by, friend!! XO
They look yummy! Pinning 🙂
Definitely right! So fun and simple to make
Yum! These would be perfect for so many things & there are so many different meats & cheeses you could add.
These are so fun to make with the kids. They have so much fun eating them too!
Thank you so much for sharing this amazing lunch kabobs recipe! Will surely have this again! It’s really easy to make and it tasted so delicious! Highly recommended!
Great idea!! Great for lunch or snacking in between! My kids love everything on these!
I like the variety that you can use in these little kabobs. It’s whatever you like and so cute!
Magical! If I serve these elements separately to my kids, they don’t eat it. But add it to a skewer and they’re gobbled right up. I also love the ides for other flavors.
These look so cute, and they’d be keto friendly 😍
Love to make these for the kiddos! Instead of wooden sticks, I use cake pop sticks. They come in a bunch of different colors and they’re made from paper, like a lollipop stick
