Gluten Free, Dairy Free lunch with Chocolate Chip Banana Bread



Yesterday, I posted one of Rose's favourite kinds of lunch - the snack box. Today her Planetbox has her second favourite kind of lunch - salad.


Rose has Applegate Farms chicken strips, red grapes, dairy & gluten free choc chip banana bread (recipe from Natural Nutrition) with probably a bit too large of a smear of dairy free butter like spread! The main compartment has all of her favourite veggies in a salad - romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, yellow mini bell pepper, carrot coins & cucumber.

When she came home she said it was the best lunch ever, even the chicken. Love her.

Cheese & Crackers lunch



This was a lunch for Rose from a couple of weeks ago. I am taking a children's natural nutrition course right now - this one breaks the rules as the cheese wedge & graham crackers were not the best choices- but I was using up some items that we still had on hand. We're a work in progress!


Rose has - apple slices, green grapes, mini bell peppers and snap peas, Laughing Cow cream cheese spread & cheddar cubes, graham crackers & pumpkin seeds.

I love the Yumbox for this kind of snack style lunch. Little bites of many items. Rose loves her lunch to have this kind of variety.

Simple lunch in our new Yumbox Panino


We had two very scary storms here in Bermuda. First Tropical Storm Fay and then a week later Hurricane Gonzalo. I am happy to report that we are all fine and have power restored at our home. 

Here is a today's lunch for Heidi packed in one of our new Yumbox Panino containers.

Ham sandwich with cheddar cheese topper, apple slices, orange slices & almonds.


I'm sure that it will come home empty - hers always does!

Shel Silverstein's Birthday today!

We are celebrating the birth of Shel Silverstein, he would have been 84 today. I remember when my Mom first gave me A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends, I instantly read them cover to cover. The poems made me chuckle and I loved the drawings. Right before school started in September, I bought A light in the Attic for my 8 year old. She enjoyed it just as much as her Mom and has read loads of poems aloud to her sisters.

Today's post is part of a blog hop with my Bento Bloggers and Friends in honour of Shel Silverstein's birthday. Welcome to any new readers! To hop along to the next lunch in the hop, click the button at the end of the post.


This short poem from A Light in the Attic, gave us all a giggle and inspired today's lunch.

Gumeye Ball

There's an eyeball in the gumball machine,
Right there between the red and the green, 
Lookin' at me as if to say, 
"You don't need any more gum today."

~Shel Silverstein

Rose's lunch is a cheese sandwich with a tortilla gumball machine topper. yellow tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese, grapes and blueberries.

A new milestone - all girls at the same school! (and some vegetarian lunches too!)


Yesterday was Emily's first day at school! She handled it like a champ. No tears and enjoyed her day at big school. She will be at home by lunchtime each day this year so I won't be packing her a lunch to take.

Here are all of my girls ready for school yesterday. They were greeted by a bunch of smiling teachers who have known most of them since they were babies, happy to have all of them at school together at last! It was quite a moment for me to have them all climb out of the car and head off to their classrooms. Of course, I spent the morning thinking of them, particularly Emily on her first day, hoping that it was a good one! And it was. 


Poor Rosie did not have a good day, I had to pick her up after lunch as she was not feeling well. Fever & a sore throat  - we're off to the Dr today. Yikes!


The girls wanted a little yogurt in their lunches today so I used our leakprook Yumbox lunchboxes.

This was Rose's lunch - she didn't eat much on account of not being well.
yogurt, cheese sticks, sprinkles in the little cup for her yogurt, no bake energy bites, pepitas, grapes & strawberries, grape tomatoes, yellow bell pepper.


Heidi's is similar

Just realised that I put her eye picks in with the eyelashes facing the wrong way - oops!

Amy's lunch is packed in our brand new Yumbox Panino. Sadly, this photo is pretty terrible. I was a bit nervous for Emily's first day and trying to get out the door early enough in case she had a meltdown at dropoff. My hand must have been shaking!


Annie's cookies, strawberry fruit leather, energy bites, almonds, bell pepper & cucumbers, clementine, grapes



Here are some items that I used when making this lunch.
