Or, you know, sandwich-free lunch ideas for anyone. Because I don't know anyone who, deep down, doesn't want food on a stick at some point.
P.S. All 10 ideas are nut-free, to correspond to many schools' preferences that school lunches omit potentially allergenic foods. You're welcome.
1. Food on Sticks
Think chicken satays, beef skewers, or sausage kebabs, packed on lunchbox-sized sticks for kids. Because everything is more fun on a stick. (For young kids, use flat, blunt-edged bamboo sticks, not the stabby toothpick-like kind.)
Rice paper wrappers or large lettuce leaves make great rolled-up meals that are fun to eat. Fill them with tofu, pork, or shrimp; try our rainbow rolls; or let your kids branch out using their own ideas.
