Tasty Treats

Skip the usual fare and treat the kiddos to a bento box full of tasty kabobs. They’re easy to make and so good that they’re almost too cool for school.

Turkey With a Twist

Sandwiches will ALWAYS be a go-to lunch option, but this turkey and cheese duo is served up with a twist, literally. Get that serving of fruit in there by skewering some bits of apple and a few grapes. And who wouldn't love chocolatey marshmallows on a pretzel stick for dessert?

Italian Flair

If your kids are obsessed with pasta, try this meatball tortellini stack with spicy marinara sauce. If you run out of skewers, use uncooked spaghetti! Pair it with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes or fresh fruit to ensure you find ZERO leftovers at the end of the day.

Go Greek

Let them Greek out with skewered chicken, pita, cherry tomato and olives. Include a side of feta cheese they can sprinkle to their heart's desire. And it's not an authentic Mediterranean experience without the hummus! Top it all off with a light strawberry shortcake combo.

PB+J Jams

Get as gourmet as you like, but most kids are perfectly content with an old-school peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Keep it fun with a rainbow of juicy fruit and mini cheese slices for perfect for little hands.

Say Cheeseburger!

This mini cheeseburger on a stick will have even the pickiest eaters excited about lunch. (Yes, meatballs rule!) Throw in some tater tots for extra kudos from the kids.
