Somehow - I missed taking a photo of Heidi's lunch today! Here are the other two.
Spot the puppy for Amy
diced peaches, strawberries, granola bar, vitamins
honeydew melon, Peanut butter sandwich with puppy cheese topper
Rarely do I use the food colour markers as I figure they probably don't need that added to their diet. Amy has been just begging me to to use them on her lunch. I think someone at school must have pretty coloured sandwiches! Well I decided to do it as a surprise today - and when she spied me making her lunch she was so excited you would have thought I filled it with candy! She had to go for a vaccination today so I thought this might make her happy when she got back to school just in time for lunch. (She was very brave at the Dr.'s and the Dr was just fabulous with her as usual so I was relieved.)
Rose's Lunch - almost the same as above
diced peaches, strawberry, granola bar, vitamins
honeydew melon, strawberry jam semi-sealed sandwich (it didn't work out too well) with an American cheese kitty on top
There have been odd times where not much lunch has been eaten in the past 2 weeks or so. Amy claims that she doesn't have enough time. Rose doesn't really have an answer. I have been trying to put in more fruit and other things that they really like without many new items, but I cannot tell if it made a difference or not. It's still pretty hot here and maybe they just really aren't that hungry at lunchtime. If it continues I'll ask the teachers for their thoughts on what might be happening.
Slow moving morning today. Very similar lunches for the girls.
lemon cookies, grapes, vitamins
strawberries & mandarin oranges, PB crab sandwich
This sandwich was supposed to be for Rose and I was going to make her an ocean theme. BUT Rose saw me making lunch and decided that she wanted the hearts like Amy instead. So a little switcheroo was in order!
goldfish, strawberries, vitamins,
grapes & mandarin oranges, PB hearts sandwich
She also said she wanted goldfish instead of cookies - Done!
This was the reason I was going to make it an ocean theme in the first place. Ah well.
lemon cookies, strawberries, vitamins
grapes & mandarin oranges, PB hearts sandwich.
Amy wasn't up yet so she missed out on lunch choices - I don't think she'll object to cookies in her lunch though :)
Both older girls have the same today (hot lunch at school for Heidi). It is very easy to make identical or almost identical lunches in the morning. I am the one who is having a hard time getting out of bed in the mornings so this definitely saves me some time.
honeydew melon, granola bar, strawberries, green grapes, gummy vitamins
teddy bear shaped ham sandwich.
I was going to attempt a more panda bear looking sandwich but just didn't have the energy today. Next time. I know the girls will still love all of the cute panda picks as they are a favourite.
Car sandwich with a little girl pick driver and fruit leather tyres.
These grapes were huge so I halved them to fit a bit better in the lunchbox. Normally I put mandarin oranges in the little dipper container to keep their juice from leaking out into the next comparment. Since it was just a few pieces today I blotted them with a paper towel. I think it will be fine. KMFX!
Amy's friend got a new puppy this summer. She wanted me to make a sandwich to look like her friend's puppy. Well she got a little puppy but it doesn't look at all like her friend's Yorkie. She has a good imagination though -- she can pretend :)
Amy & Rose begged me to put some pizza in their lunch today. I told them that I didn't think they would like cold pizza (and they didn't really like it) but I still let them try it. Heidi had hot lunch at school today but she was very disturbed to not be taking lunch like her sisters. So I let her carry an empty lunch box :0
pineapple, strawberries, ham sandwich with punk sugar crystals
same as Amy except no picks, no sugar sprinkles and I cut her flower into 3 hearts :)
diced peaches, babybel cheese, goldfish, craisins
pineapple, strawberries, flower ham sandwich with blue sugar crystals
Almost everything was eaten again - Amy left some goldfish, Rose left some fruit and Heidi ate everything except a bite of cheese!?! She had snack separately so it's kind of shocking that she ate all of that food today. Nursery school must make her hungry!
Amy's lunch for today -- the second day of school. She had a great day yesterday and she likes being one of the older children in her class this year and is looking forward to the little ones starting today. ( Montessori school and they stagger entry).
car shaped boiled egg, granola bites, grapes, strawberry, pineapple
craisins, cucumbers, grape tomato, carrot sticks
house shaped ham sandwich with fruit leather door & windows.
