Waffle Kabobs Bento Lunch Idea

Sharing is caring!

If you’re a fan of breakfast any time of the day, this Waffle Bento Lunch Idea is perfect! Not only is it super easy to make but it’s excellent for the kids lunch, too! These bento waffle kabobs are going to be a huge hit! Be sure to check out the rest of my Bento Lunch Ideas for kids for even more recipes that kids love!

When it comes to your kids school lunch, stop stressing! This recipe is seriously kid friendly and will have them bringing home an empty bento box and a full tummy every single time! Bento boxes are a great way to pack the food and a fun way for the kids to gobble it down as well.

It’s really not hard to make a waffle sandwich either. If you want to make homemade waffles for this recipe, go for it! I like to use the ones that are premade already at the store to save on my time and my sanity.

I’ll then just add in some fruit, or maybe a cheese stick, and it’s the perfect lunch! The kids also love when I add a hard boiled egg, too!

This is a great way to vary up their lunch a bit and add in some new items, too.

Can I make this using a mini pancake instead?

Absolutely. If you don’t have waffles in the house and only have pancakes, use the pancakes! You can also use gluten-free waffles as well.

Important Tips for this Bento Box Idea:

The best part about making these breakfast kabobs is that they’re versatile. I like to add some peanut butter to them sometimes so that there’s an extra boost of protein – and the kids tend to really love when I do that!
