The Salad Kabob! It’s not mysterious. Or life-changing. It’s chunks of vegetables on a skewer that will trick your child into eating what’s on it.
That’s it. Period.
It’s true – there are so many reasons to get kids eating vegetables. And salads. But that might mean you cut it into a funny shape. Or puree and hide it into a dish. Or…you slide it onto a stick and watch them experience pure joy.
I packed this lunch this morning and my son came up to me and said “Wow! That looks amazing mom!” Had I made a salad with these items…? Would he have said that…? I don’t think so…
Sometimes it is WORTH being creative. It’s WORTH wasting your hours on Pinterest. Or this blog – haha. Do whatever you can to INSPIRE YOU! Find ways of inspiring your kids, also. So they eat vegetables or to just become interested in the lunch box process.
Mysterious Life Changing Salad Kabob

- Other Options or Combos: chunks of cooked chicken, grilled zucchini, sweet peppers, steamed carrot, pickles, mixed roasted vegetables, lil’ potatoes
*If you’re concerned about them empaling themselves sub in an edible stick – like carrot.
Thread the items onto the skewer – serve delighted children. Serve with an EASY Balsamic Dressing (that they could make).
