Counting down…8 more days until Halloween! Included in the link below are quick photos and simple ideas of how to fill little tummies before the sugarfest! Click the link below for my post from last year’s kids’ party.
Miss G (4 years old) is having a batty bento. She has a larger bat and smaller bat sandwich on top. They’re pumpkin butter and almond butter sandwiches made from Rudi’s Whole Grain bread and cookie cutters. Above them are a seckel pear with bat sticker and red seedless grapes. At the top left are mini carrots and grape tomatoes and at the top right is cannellini bean bruschetta with multi colored heirloom tomatoes packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.
Miss G’s snack today is Sabra hummus with pretzel sticks, dried apricots and the heart shaped container with a bat has a few cinnamon apple almonds in it as a treat.
My husband had something far less organized for lunch. I grabbed an Easy LunchBoxes container and threw in a rainbow of fruits & veggies. In the main compartment are snow peas, carrots, grape tomatoes, a seckel pear and a mandarin orange. At the top left he has quinoa lentil tabouleh from Whole Foods and at the top right is my homemade cannellini bean bruschetta.
The quickest, simplest way to get your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables is to make it fun! If it has a peel that they’re not going to eat like a banana or an orange, color on it or put a sticker on it! This was a simple Sharpie marker on a clementine orange that took about 1 minute to make.
