Lunch Line Up: Week 2 Day 4

Does your child ever get sick of their plain old sandwiches? Spank won't even touch a normal pb&j sandwich, never has been that child, I don't fight it anymore. He does like peanut butter/soy butter though with apples cut up, so when I saw this I thought why not give it a try! You could try other things sandwiched between the apples as well.
Notice the heart cut out? Yea, I'm going to have to "boyify" my cut out selection. He told me "Mom, hearts are for girls, NOT boys!" I did try to convince him a flower was more girly, but I'm not sure I convinced him!

Lunch Line Up: week 2

Spank helped out a lot with this one! I had picked up a HUGE watermelon this past weekend at the farmer's market and needed to use it up. When I say huge I mean it filled 2 large tupperware containers AND I had to pull out my large rubbermaid pitcher and store some in there! No one minded though, it tasted delicious and it was incredibly cheap! Chunk came home and wanted some as his after school snack too!

Lunch Line Up: Week 2

We decided simple was best this day! Either way he ate & it fit his diet! I think he was most upset that I didn't include a tomato of some kind this day, so I decided to surprise him for snack! 

He loved it!

Lunch Line Up:Day 5

What Child doesn't love Pizza? I still haven't encountered one that didn't! They have their little minds made up from a young age that pizza is delicious! Spank is no different, perhaps worse with his love of pizza(it comes naturally from his father). If I let my children make my meal plan weekly it would include pizza 5 out of 7 days or more, I'm sure! I started making whole wheat tortilla pizzas as a healthier option to all those carbs and grease in a lot of other pizza. This is one night we have NO leftovers in our house!

Lunch Line Up: Day 4

Can you tell this one was extremely influenced by Spanky, he is the biggest veggie dog child I've ever met!
I asked him Tomatoes or Broccoli and he said both, so I decided I'd let him have a little of each. He said this was another of his favorites!!

Lunch Line Up: Day 3

So Last night was Taco Night in our house, and Spank asked to take it in his lunch today. Of course, this was fine by me! I knew his lunch would be devoured, cause he LOVES Taco night! I think we all do.

Lunch Line-up: Day 2

I think this was Chunk's favorite Lunch all week! He loved his Pancakes(1,2,3 shaped) and he liked helping me make them! We found out he isn't a big fan of boiled eggs now, he used to devour them, in fact at Easter in May I had to tell him if he didn't stay out of them the Easter Bunny wouldn't have any to hide for him! So, We will be switching the boiled egg out next time for scrambled, unless he changes his mind! I think this meal was a bit filling, cause he brought home the Chewy Quaker bar and at as his after school snack this day. I'd rather him get enough to eat, than go hungry the rest of the day.

Wondering about his cute little Skull Labels? Be sure to check back this week for my Review on Oliver's Labels to learn more about them!

Lunch Line-Up: Day 1

I think with Spank starting school, his favorite "chore" to help me out with is making his lunch & snack every night. He is a somewhat picky eater & seems to eat better with a variety of small choices to eat daily. With his diet, he has some special restrictions and substitutions we've had to figure into the meal plan, but his teachers say he eats great every day! That is my main goal, so this is one happy momma!

After searching for ideas and finding so many great ideas and incorporating our own ideas as well, I thought it would be great to link up, so if you'd like to share your children's(or your own) great lunches-go right ahead!

This is what we used to make today's lunch:

Spank started Pre-K

My first born started his first day of Pre-K this past week! It was an extremely bittersweet moment. We were excited for him because he was beyond excited to be going, but I was not wanting to let him go and miss him so much. He had a great first week and cannot wait to go back tomorrow! He has had so many great stories from the first week of school, that makes me feel so much better knowing that he is having fun and making friends!
We are hoping this week will go as smoothly as week one did!
