Kids spend a considerable amount of time eating and snacking – all day – everyday.  Sometimes as moms, we have to think outside of the box and offer them something fun and appealing.   When it comes to feeding my kids I have three priorities:  Meals and snacks that are healthy, easy to make and fun to eat.

 

Kabobs are a great alternative to the boring – non appealing snacks we tend to give kids day to day.  Not only are they perfect for a cool summer snack, they’re a quick easy recipe for moms when standing over a hot stove is not an option.

Once you decide which kabob you want to make gather all of your ingredients, a wooden skewer and knife for cutting.  I made 3 different variations for my kiddos to try:  Fruit Kabob, Veggie Kabob, and a Lunch Kabob.

Here’s what you’ll do in 3 easy steps:

  1. Cut your ingredients into bite-size pieces
  2. Carefully slide your items onto the stick
  3. Alternate between ingredients until kabob

For younger kids and toddlers I would suggest mini kabobs using toothpicks or cut-down skewers.  For extra safety you may even try popsicle-style sticks with no points or the little lollipop type sticks you can find in the candy making isle at a craft store.   My boys are growing kids with hefty appetites so the regular sized skewers worked out perfectly for them.

I chose the three variations above but you can basically use anything that will go on a stick.

Tip:   Make sure to leave some room at either end of the stick so the kabob will be able to be held.

Kabobs are a fun and easy snack or dinner option for kids and adults too.   The options to create a great kabob are endless.  Just use some imagination and enjoy!

 Do you have any fun recipes for kabobs?
