Lunch Kabobs

Kid-friendly lunch kabobs are filled with savory meats and fresh veggies. They’re perfect for parties and BBQs!

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 kidsa re 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).

Storing Info

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 approved of skewers).

    1. 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
