When my oldest was little she was the pickiest eater ever!

We pretty much had to distract her by going for a walk and bring fun food with us to get her to eat dinner. These were her favorites. We called them “Mama style meat rolls”. I have no idea where this name came from but it stuck. I’d make a handful of them and then we would go for a walk. Every time we started to go up a hill she would get another one to eat. It became a game but I was totally okay with that because I knew she was eating! I removed the tooth pick before giving it to her and the olive went straight onto her finger and she ate it last after using it to point out every bird within seeing distance. Good times!

Back then we didn’t have as many choices for meat as we do today.

I wish that Hillshire Farm Naturals™ were around then. It would have been my go to choice for meat, especially since they contain no artificial ingredients, preservatives, colors or added nitrites/nitrates. They are slow roasted and perfectly seasoned. All of that makes this new lunch meat safe, healthy and delicious!

I decided to make my in-laws this as an afternoon smack.

I served my Turkey and Cheese Bites to them by the pool with some ice cold water with sliced lemons. They were a hit and I’ll be making them for the next football game too!

  • This sounds really awesome. Unfortunately my son’s allergic to dairy so he can’t have the cheese sticks, but I would love them. I’m also a huge fan of the black olive. I’ts like the cherry on top for me, lol. Maybe for my son I could wrap the meat around a pretzel stick, but let it hang off the bottom and slide the exposed end of the pretzel into the hole on the olive, lol that might work! Nice, just modified your idea to make it work for my little man too! 🙂

  • This looks incredibly easy and something healthy that my two year old would even eat because both my kids love olives! Thanks for the awesome idea!
