Skewer Lunches

Or Sticky Stacky Sandwiches, as Amy at Super Healthy Kids call them!

And here’s a muffin tin lunch on skewers…big and small…from Lizz and A Little Bit of This and That!

Very fun and clever way to make lunch a little different each day!

While I love the skewers Idea for lunches. Be careful about sending the long pointy slewrs in your kids lunches. Not only will the use them as swords and possibly hurt each other with them but some school might see them as weapons and suspend your child over them. toothpicks or straw might be safer options.

Yes Jennifer! Toothpicks would be the perfect option for smaller lunch box containers too! Hadn’t thought about straws…the coffee straws would be perfect!

I had a hard time cramming the coffee straws through ham cues. Used a knife to pre poke holes and then loaded the ham.

I have been making lunches/snacks on a stick for years for my girls and they love them. They always want me to make them sandwiches on a stick. To avoid the problem of using sharp skewers, I make them on plastic straws or popsicle sticks instead, and then send along a condiment for dipping.
