Bagel kabobs

Lunch Box Bagel Kabobs

What kid doesn't love food on a stick (or what adult, for that matter)? This one is essentially a deconstructed bagel sandwich. Choose among any of the four classic options, pull out a couple of wooden skewers, and put a little fun into meal time. To pack into a lunch box, wrap in parchment or wax paper and twist at the ends or tuck into a suitable container. If you have little ones, snap off the pointy ends of the sticks before wrapping.
