I’m not sure why, but presentation is everything when you’re trying to get your picky eaters to try new foods. Serving this sandwich in a “deconstructed” kabob will allow your kids to choose what they want to try, gradually introducing new things.

You can serve all kinds of new and different foods using these bamboo pop sticks, from fruit kabobs to dessert skewers. It’s fun to come up with new and exciting ways to serve food!

    hi! I'm shannon

    I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
