School Lunch Ideas
Sandwich Kabobs are a fun School Lunch Idea for little ones who want something more exciting than sandwiches in their lunchbox every day. All the best parts of a turkey sandwich, served on a stick! Turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato and some whole wheat bread. Add a little cup with a dipping sauce and it’s the perfect school lunch!

School Lunch Ideas:
The start of the school year is always exciting! One of my kids’ favorite things is planning their outfits to wear and making/planning their lunches. The older kids make their lunches, but I’m on lunch duty for the little ones. And my little ones are not fans of regular sandwiches. Which means that sometimes a little creativity is needed.
Sandwich Kabob: My little ones are masters at deconstructing their sandwiches and eating them piece by piece. So, I figure I can help them out with that and have it all on a stick. Then I can send them with a little cup of some avocado ranch dressing for dipping and they are happy as can be! Borden® Cheese Snack Bars are great for this recipe, as they’re packed with protein to get my kids through the day, but available in delicious flavors I know they’ll eat up!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Flowers: My kids also have a love for classic peanut butter and jelly. But my little girl always loves it when things are dressed up just a little extra. Using a fun cookie cutter is all it takes to make her over the top excited about this classic.
I used the same flower cutters (affiliate link) I use when making mini pie crusts. It comes with a variety of sizes, so a larger one for the sandwich and then the small one to make the strawberry flower in the middle.
Once the main part of the lunch is done then we can add the fun snacks. Some of my kid’s favorites include:
Fruits: grapes, apple slices, strawberries, banana
Veggies: carrot sticks, cucumbers, mini peppers
Other items: Borden® Cheese Snack Bars (available in a variety of wholesome, creamy flavors including Mild Cheddar, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack and Gouda,) crackers, oatmeal raisin muffins.
At school, at home, or on the go, Borden® Cheese Snack Bars fuel my family by providing important nutrients to keep them going throughout the day. Borden® Cheese Snack Bars are a great addition to these sandwich kabobs because they’re packed with 5g of protein that fuels my kids for the rest of their day.
These Borden® Cheese Snack Bars are also a delicious and nutritious addition to conveniently add as a side to my daughter’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Flowers.
Borden® Cheese Snack Bars are sold in packs of individually-wrapped bars, perfect for tossing into a lunchbox or backpack for on-the-go snacking making them the perfect school lunch idea.
