Here’s a rundown of the last few weeks of school lunches. I hope you find some cute ideas here!
A double corn fritter sun with cheese rays, and apple and cucumber slices. Snack is grapes and a string cheese cut up, in the Wexy bag.
Little ham and cheese sandwiches cut into pumpkin shapes on a bed of romaine, pineapple and strawberries, cucumber slices, and cheese cubes with fresh raspberries for snack.
Chicken tortilla soup (kept hot in the blue Thermos), some sprouted Way Better blue corn chips, a few sticks of cheese, strawberries and kiwi, two mini banana muffins, and half a fruit leather cut into a pumpkin shape. For Jessica’s snack, I cut a string cheese in half and put those and two grapes in the piggy, then put the outside of the pumpkin fruit leather cutout on top of that.
A real-food version of pizza “Lunchables”. I cut rounds out of a whole wheat pita, shredded some cheddar, used a pastry cutter to cut Applegate ham slices into fun little wavy squares, chopped some fresh pineapple, and dropped a cube of frozen homemade marinara sauce in. Voila, Lunchables! For snack I put a string cheese and a few strawberries into a Wexy monster bag for Jess, and Abby got olives.
Garden veggie soup, half of a whole wheat pita, pineapple, and cucumber slices. Snack for Jess is a string cheese and a sectioned clementine in a Wexy monster bag. (Abby got black olives.)
Jessica’s is on top, with an Applegate salami and cheese sandwich on sprouted bread, cut into a heart with a little monkey skewer holding it together, atop romaine leaves. Abby’s is the bottom lunch, with the same sandwich parts but cut into bats and put on kabobs. Then both girls have apple slices, a few grapes, clementine wedges, celery, and sunbutter. For snack, Jess has a string cheese, some grapes, and 3 multigrain crackers in a monster Wexy bag. Abby has black olives and grapes in the froggy.
Ham, cheese, grapes, clementine wedges, carrots, and a paleo pumpkin muffin that Jess helped make. Snack is a string cheese and a handful of grapes.
A paleo pumpkin muffin, butter, clementine wedges, celery, and plain yogurt with a bit of honey mixed in and berries. For snack, Abby got bunny-shaped cheese cut-outs and grapes, and Jess got a smoothie freeze pop.
A little ham and cheese sandwich cut into an acorn shape, string cheese, celery with sunbutter and raisins, corn and peas, and homemade apple sauce. Snack is a smoothie freeze pop.
Beans, meat, and cheese in the hot Thermos, tortilla rounds, lettuce, carrots, red pepper slices, and fruit leather strips. Snack is a berry yogurt smoothie freeze pop.
Half a ham and cheese sandwich on sprouted bread with cute little critter sticks stuck in. Half a banana with pineapple smeared on the end to prevent browning. Since both of my chicklets are battling colds right now, I want to make sure I’m sending lots of vitamin C. Clementine slices and kiwi chunks. Plain yogurt with frozen berries. For snack I made two large sections of ants on a log and put them in a Wexy bag.
Sprouted bread toast with cream cheese and a dollop of fruit spread. I put wax paper between the two layers of toast. Celery, cucumber, and pineapple. Jess has clementine wedges and a string cheese in a monster Wexy bag, and Abby has olives in her froggy. She cannot get enough of the olives.
Soup is in the blue Thermos, toasted sprouted bread with butter and two cheese bees, apple slices, and corn and peas. Snack is a smoothie freeze pop.
Whole wheat pasta with julienned carrots and cheese sticks, cucumber and red pepper slices, and a clementine with a jack o’ lantern face drawn on. Snack was a monster Wexy bag with apple slices and a string cheese.
Leftover chicken fajita mixture is kept hot in the blue Thermos. A whole wheat tortilla is rolled up, and there’s also yogurt and fresh raspberries, with a berry smoothie freeze pop for snack.
