Hi ho! Hi ho! It’s back to school we go. Now you can envision the Seven Dwarfs and hear their whistling stuck in your head for the day. This isn’t a Snow White lunch though. I’m just happy that one of my kids is back to school today. I love having them over the long weekends, but they are ready to go back to their friends after the long weekend. These lunches are from last week when my laptop failed. The best news for me is that I’m headache free now after 7 days off of caffeine. Phew! Last week was a long one.
For Miss G’s 4 year old lunch I used a new mini square pocket sandwich cutter that I have. I filled them with SunButter and surrounded the bite sized lunch with mini carrots. I have found that the more bite sized the lunch is, the more my kids eat. If this were a normal sized sandwich cut in half, there would be some left when she returns from school. Instead, it was an empty lunchbox that came home Friday. In the top left compartment is an organic mini apple and in the top right of her Easy LunchBoxes container are sliced cucumbers.

Miss A (2 years old) went off to school Friday with Sunbutter and jam pinwheels on Rudi’s Organic Spelt Tortillas. I stick them in the fridge or freezer to make them easier to cut before sending off. The nut and seed butters can get runny and squished so I cool them down making them easier to slice. Next to the wrap pinwheels are sugar snap peas. Also included in today’s lineup are organic raspberries, blueberries, cucumbers and locally picked strawberries packed in a LunchBots Uno.
Have a great week, and happy lunch packing!
