The New Year has officially begun and with it comes the responsibility of creating fun school lunches my girls will want to eat. Our school is quite strict and won’t allow the children to trade lunches but we’ve often experienced school lunches coming home half eaten because the girls “didn’t like it”.
This month I’ve involved the girls and with the help of a package given to us by Snack Pack it’s gotten easier.I was invited to be a part of Snack Packs “No Tradesies” blog tour and they sent over some tools to help us:
- two delicious flavors of Snack Pack pudding
- Lunch Punch Sandwich Cutters
- Happy Spoon
- mini portable travel speaker
- lunch bag consisting of a cooler bag and four leak-proof, compartmentalized food containers
Let’s get real here folks, it’s not simple to come up with healthy, entertaining and delicious school lunch ideas. I think I’ve finally found the key, getting the kids involved! It didn’t hurt that they had music playing while they were helping…but hey I can get into that as well.
Sydney really enjoyed choosing the shape her sandwich would be cut into, especially when she got to use some brute force!
If you don’t have the special sandwich shape cutters we’re using you can easily achieve a fun shape using cookie cutters. This really is a treat for the kids when they aren’t expecting it in their school lunches.
Each girl has chosen their school lunch, right down to type of bread. I was impressed that they put time and consideration into the balance of fruit and veggies.
The Snack Packs make a tasty treat to finish off their lunches and thankfully they didn’t argue over the adorable Happy Spoon because we had 1 other special mini spoon.
They made use of all the space in the lunch container, explaining to me they didn’t like when strawberries touch the bread and make it pink. BRAVO!
You can catch up with Snack Pack Canada on Facebook where they have many tips for creating delicious school lunches.
