Packed Lunches

June 29, 2012

  For the last five weeks, I've been packing Sky's lunches and it's worked out pretty well.  I packed my last lunch for her last night and I can't say that I'll mind being done with it.  I like the idea of it and it was fun to try and make creative and healthy lunches but there were a lot of evenings when it felt like "just one more thing to do".   I wrote about what I made for her for the first two weeks in this post: Lunches and here are the last three weeks. 
  For the most part, these are cold lunches that Florina could just grab out of the fridge.  I also tried not to buy anything out of the ordinary for them, the exceptions being the summer sausage I used for her sausage and cheese skewers and the sandwhich thins I bought to make her "flatbread" pizzas.  I hope some of these lunches can be helpful to anyone else out there struggling to keep their toddler interested and eating healthy!

Tuesday:
Sausage and cheese skewers
Banana muffin
Apple slices with peanut butter

Wednesday:
Cheese tortellini with spaghetti sauce
Applesauce
TLC crackers

Thursday:
Turkey cups with peas and mac and cheese (I originally found this recipe on Bon Appetit's website but I can't find it now.  Spray muffin cups with cooking spray and put in two pieces of deli turkey to make a bowl.  You can fill it with anything you want but I used leftover peas and mac and cheese, with a slice of american cheese mixed in to help hold it all together.  Sky loved these and I think I'm going to make them for dinner sometime)
Carrot sticks with dressing
Apple Sauce

Friday:
"Flatbread" pizza (spaghetti sauce and cheese on a sandwhich thin)
Yogurt
Mango

Saturday:

Hard boiled egg

Chicken fingers with cheese-y salsa for dipping
Grapes
TLC crackers
