Have you noticed that kids will eat anything off a stick? It's a fast, fun, way to get toddlers to eat. Here are some variations:
-Stack apples, bananas, and marshmallows on a skewer (optional- add peanut butter between each layer)
- Create a "sandwich on a stick" by stacking chunks of cheese, meat, and bread on a skewer
-Stack grilled chicken, and grilled vegetables for a dinner kebab
-Create taffy kebabs for any event or holiday by using specific colors. The Neapolitan (pink/brown/white) ones are cute for a baby or bridal shower, cinnamon and mint for Christmas, orange cream, and licorice for Halloween, etc. They can double as table decor if you stick each skewer into a foam ball and use as a centerpiece.
-You can also make candy kebabs for any event using seasonal candy. Mellowcreme pumpkins and ghost mallows are especially cute for Halloween. Gumdrops and peppermint ribbon candy is great for Christmas.
I have seen everything from mini-cupcake kebabs, to S'more kebabs. Pretty much anything you can slide on a stick is fair game. Be creative!
