Most people think of kabob skewers for shish kabobs full of meat and vegetables for the dinnertime grill, but those bamboo, wooden, or metal skewers can make any mealtime fun!
Here are a few fun ideas for using skewers at breakfast, lunch, snack, and dessert:
- Start the day with a kabob – Make breakfast fun by stacking waffles and strawberries onto the skewer.
- Sandwich on a stick – Alternate pieces of whole grain bread with low-fat cheese chunks and pieces of deli sliced turkey breast for a lunchbox change-up.
- Make a healthy desert – Thread washed fruit (sliced if needed) onto a skewer for a healthy dessert (or even a simple snack stack).
Get older children involved by letting them thread different food onto the skewers. Keep in mind that the ends are sharp, so use caution, always observe kids in the kitchen, and use soft foods.
