Carrot head and a flowery finish
Posted February 28, 2012on:
I was taking some pictures for a class to demonstrate how to make simple faces so I used the leftovers from last night to make Miss G’s lunch today. The hair ended up looking like a hockey helmet, but I am grateful that she’s 3 and doesn’t care! The sandwich is on whole grain bread, crinkle cut carrot hair & mouth, Veggy “cheese eyes with cucumber pupils and a raisin nose stuck on with agave nectar. Above the head is a pick of mini heirloom tomatoes and mini cucumber slices. In the blue cup are dried cranberries and a strawberry on top. Below in the red cup is a plum mouse with cucumber eyes & nose sitting on a bed of barley. Miss G’s lunch is packed in an Easy Lunch Box We are still keeping with the meat and dairy free theme in our house, and the kids are adapting surprisingly well!
Little A gets a flowery lunch today. She also has an almond butter and jam sandwich on whole grain with a cucumber slice in the middle. She doesn’t eat cucumber, but I keep putting in new vegetables and fruits for her to try. It can take up to 20 times for some children to decide they like and will eat a new food. I just keep the quantities small so I’m not throwing out a lot of food. The small green flower cup has dried cranberries in it and the large one has sliced plums and a sliced strawberry in it pack in her LunchBots Duo. Both girls get ice water each day with their lunches.
