Cheese Kabobs For School Lunches

These cheese kabobs are a fun and healthy way to feed your kids at school each day with minimal prep or effort.

Prepping lunches every day gets really tedious, really fast for most of us parents. The bagged lunch routine, day in and day out, makes most of us want to throw yet another peanut butter and jelly sandwich at the wall. So each year, I try to come up with more unique ideas, not just for you, my readers, but for myself as well. You can find all my school lunch ideas here.

Cheese kabobs are one of the easiest lunches you can make. I have another version here if you want more ideas. But truly, you can put just about anything on a popsicle stick and it will automatically turn it into a fun lunch your kids will actually want to eat. Especially if you include a delicious, healthy dip for the veggies!

There are lots of dip options for kabobs. The type of dip you use will depend on what you put on the kabob. For most cheese and veggies kabobs, a homemade ranch dip is always a great option.

If your kids like tahini, a good tahini dressing can be wonderful as well.

Hummus is also an option. You can try a traditional hummus recipe, or get creative and try hummus with some Mexican flare like this Taco Hummus. (On the kabob, you could try cheddar cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes and pepper for that type of hummus)

There are so many options for making kabobs. But when you are talking about kids lunches, you want to make sure you are packing foods that will stay safe and healthy for them to eat. A big part of that will come down to how you pack your lunches. Beyond that, the sky is pretty much the limit. Cheese and veggies are always a good idea, but you can also make fruit kabobs or even include cooked meats or healthy lunch meats on your kabobs. Get creative!
