Expert Tips for Making Lunchbox Kabobs

While making thing kabobs is fairly simple, there are a few tips that will make it even easier.

  • When you purchase the turkey, ask the deli clerk to leave it whole and not slice it.
  • Purchase the cheddar cheese in the dairy section.  I love Cabot cheese because the flavor is perfect!
  • Mix up the dipping sauce the night before you’re going to serve it.  It gives the ingredients time to come together  and makes a more flavorful sauce.

When I’m packing school lunches I like to make sure my son has a good variety of wholesome options.  I want to maximize his nutrition so I always include several sources of dairy product. 

Because he has academic classes later in the day, he needs solid nutrition to help him stay focused and learn.  There’s always cheese or yogurt (sometimes both) and he always has milk to drink. At just .35 cents this farm fresh beverage is something ALL schools have available that you don’t need to worry about packing.  Plus, it’s kept cold at 35 degrees in the cafeteria so it’s perfect for lunch.  Learn more about the nutrition benefits of yogurt and cheese.
