Georgia’s Fun Sticks

Fun Sticks Recipe

Fun sticks are a great way to get vegie-resistant kids on board with eating vegies in their school lunches. Make them from leftovers or whatever bits and pieces you have in the fridge. Kids can even get creative with cookie cutters to make fun shapes. Here are my ideas to skewer for a fun stick. You can combine as many of the following on one stick as you like.

Makes: Depends on skewers & toppings

Recipe


Ingredients

  • Nori sheets, folded or cut into squares
  • Wholegrain bread (squares or cut into shapes)
  • Cheese, such as bocconcini, feta, cheddar (cubed or cut into shapes)
  • Meat, such as good-quality sausage, meatballs, leg ham, salmon
  • Leftover omelette or frittata (cut into squares or cubes)
  • Vegetables, cooked or raw
  • Greens/herbs (single leaves or folded)
  • Olives
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Fruit

Method


  • Help kids put their favourite bites and toppings on skewers, then pack into lunchboxes. Serve with dipping sauce if desired.
  • Tip: If your wooden skewers are too long to fit in the lunchbox, simply cut them into sections until they fit. I also like to cut the point off the skewer once they’ve finished making them.
