School Days, School Days: A Kid Lunch

Soooo, The Kid's first full day of school just so happens to fall on Fun Food Friday.  So not only am I packing a school lunch for the first time ever in my life, I've also gotta try to make it fun.  Greeaaaaat.

This is not some fancy lunch by any means, but I did try to do something more than just PB&J.

The sammie is actually peanut butter and jelly, cut into a circle.  The letters are cheddar cheese.  The silly face is a Babybel cheese with candy eyes.  To keep things from moving around, I wedged in some carrot sticks and green beans that I foraged for in the dark.  Literally.  The treat is graham crackers with buttercream frosting (which I always had in my lunches growing up). The compartment off to the side is watermelon balls and grapes on toothpicks.

Here's the kid's first ever school lunch:





And yes, he got a love note from his mommy in his lunch bag.

  1. Wow - I am such a slacker, this is amazing. I sent my kids off with peanut butter sandwiches (regular old square), an apple, and some goldfish. I do include a lunch joke everyday in their lunch though so I feel a little better about myself. But not much.
