A Kebab of Favorite Foods


Kids are known for liking or hating food based on how it looks. Kebabs are another way to beat sandwich boredom because they just look fun to eat. Buy short wooden skewers and string on bite-sized chunks of different foods your child likes. Use leftover grilled chicken or baked ham from dinner and pair it with low-fat cheese and cherry tomatoes. You can even add grapes, berries, or other fruit. There are no rules for what counts as lunch if it's healthy and your child likes it!
