Miss C loves Lunchables. For those who don't know what Lunchables are, they are a popular prepackaged lunch with crackers, some kind of cold cut meat, and cheese that the kids can stack. And most of the time they come with a candy bar.
I decided that a homemade version of a Lunchable is more budget friendly, earth friendly and kid friendly. I used some circle cutters that I use for cookies and baking to cut the ham and cheese, stacked them with Ritz crackers. Pineapple chunks speared with a heart pick and salad with ranch.
Right: Miss C's Lunchables
Left: My lunch with scraps from cheese and ham from circle,
cottage cheese, pineapple and soup (that I didn't end up eating).
I was worried that Miss C won't eat her salad but she ate it up. She even said that there are some kids that brought salads as their lunches! I was very impressed with this group of 4-year-olds since I know more than a handful adults who won't even touch a salad with a ten-foot fork! But then again, we are blessed with a "weird" kid who wanted crab and sushi after her Monday soccer practice.
