Another day, another sandwich. You look in the fridge and decide what to slap together. Bread, spread, fillings. Lunch by rote. But have you ever tried putting a sandwich on a stick?

For starters, all of the ingredients stay much more fresh that way because they’re not sitting right on the sandwich spread and, come on, isn’t everything just better when it comes on a stick?

My kids definitely thought so when they saw me packing these unique kabobs in their lunch boxes. They both let out a little chuckle when I told them I had put their sandwiches on sticks. And while it sounded a little silly to them both at first, as soon as they started munching and sliding off the ingredients one after the other, they totally got in on the fun.

As a result now, Kenya and Chloe often ask me for their meals on a stick. As long as they’re eating whatever good stuff I make for them, who am I to argue?

  1. I am SO loving all these lunch box recipes. I have the Laptop lunch box for my son and for the first time he is eating everything I pack! Please keep the ideas coming!!!!!

  2. On the right-hand side of the homepage there is a box that says “Sign up for free daily recipes” Just type your email address in that box and click submit!

  3. At the risk of sounding picky…My children are grown now however, I only fed them whole grain bread and never cold cuts or other meats which had nitrates (hotdogs, bacon etc.). I like the skewer idea for cheese fruits and veggies or anything else that’s healthy.
