Thank goodness I put it on my calendar. I check my schedule last night, and Miss G’s school is celebrating International Peace Day today. At first, I had a good laugh over what’s NOT appropriate for a kid’s lunch box that reminds me of peace and the 60s. Cheech & Chong movies, protests, stinky hippies, a lot of grass (and I don’t mean to walk on) and some really good music I will pass on to my kids some day. But for now, I decided on the basic peace sign lunch.
At the top left are barley and brown rice and black beans on top. At the top right are blackberries, raspberries and a strawberry. The peace sign is cantaloupe and piel de sapo is the greenish white melon. It’s also called a Santa Claus melon and tastes a lot like honeydew. I used a cookie cutter to cut the melon. The PEACE letters are Stretch Island fruit leather. The heart and Have A Nice Day sandwiches are Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with almond butter and sliced berries with fruit leather faces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.
In all seriousness, I think it’s great that they’re teaching 4 year olds about respecting others from all walks of life and all nations. Being kind to others always goes a long way in accepting even when we don’t understand.
Miss G’s snack today is a sliced nectarine surrounded by more melon pieces. In the round container is So Delicious brand coconut milk strawberry yogurt packed in her Happy Tiffin stainless container.
Have a great weekend!
