Lunch on a Stick

Turkey Lunch Kabob
Because food on a stick tastes better!


  • cheddar cheese, cubed
  • ham, chicken or turkey breast cubed
  • green pepper
  • cherry tomatoes
  • kabob skewers - *NOTE: for very small children you may want to cut off the sharp point of the kabob or use plastic skewers

Cut cheese and meats into cubes.
Cut pepper into chunks.
Thread onto skewers alternating cheese, meat, veggies.

This makes a great sandwich replacement and makes veggies like peppers and tomatoes more fun for little fingers to try.

That's a Wrap!

Ham n Cheese Wrap


  • Tortillas
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato wedges
  • Thin sliced ham (deli ham or leftovers)

Another great sandwich substitute for the lunch time blues.
