Kid food day 5: Kebabs

My son loved putting the ingredients onto the stick. Because we used hot dogs instead of raw meat, he was able to help without me worrying about him licking his fingers. Letting him help and using vegetables that he (mostly) likes helped him to eat far more vegetables than he usually does—without threat, coercion, or bribe.


Kebabs for kids
Adapted from My Cookery Book

Cherry or grape tomatoes
Green pepper, cut into squares
Hot dogs, sliced about 1"
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Soak long wooden skewers in water. Wash and prepare ingredients; preheat broiler. Thread ingredients onto skewers and place on baking sheet. Brush with olive oil or spray with olive oil cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil about 4 minutes, watching closely (especially hot dogs).


  1. Great little series!!!
    I wish my kids would eat more veggies, then maybe I could try this on them. I suppose there's gotta' be something I could stick on a stick that they would eat! LOL

  2. You know, I have never made kebabs, but I'll bet the kids would adore them. Thanks for the suggestion, dear☺

  3. I have really enjoyed this series. Thanks for doing it.
