Light lunch - mini pita pockets

I found some more unposted lunches form the summertime! I believe these were from a swimming lesson day when they ate these early, right after swimming lessons.

 This was for Rose.
2 mini pita pocket sandwiches - one is tuna and one is chicken salad, watermelon, grapes, carrot sticks and cucumber stick. I can't remember what was in the little cup. Likely it was ranch dip or vitamins!

Heidi's Lunch
All of the same foods as for Rose -- she just had little bears instead of a mushrooms theme

And finally Amy's Lunch
2 ham and cheese roll ups, carrot sticks, naan bread, grapes and watermelon pieces
And if I remember correctly she didn't like the naan bread! I already knew she wouldn't eat the mini pita pockets or the tuna, or the chicken salad which is why hers is different in the first place. Oh she's very choosy my little Amy!

School lunch without a sandwich...

Rose didn't want a sandwich again. I decided to try something new with her. Pita chips and hummus. 
She LOVED it. 

cupcake, green grapes, honeydew melon, strawberries, 
cucumber sticks, carrot sticks
Stacy's Parmesan, Garlic & Herb pita chips with Hummus

She wanted me to put a word in her lunch too, she is a very early reader and can only read short phonetic words so far. So I gave her the word fun. I was under pressure and it's all I could think of!!

Easy school lunches

I was in a bit of a lunch rut the last week or so. I still made the girls some good healthy (mostly) lunches but not too much by way of themes or cute accents. They certainly did not mind and happily ate almost all of their lunches. Here are a few photos of our basic, easy school lunches from the past week. 

Amy's Lunches

Rose has been a bit on and off about sandwiches still. Sometimes she asks for one but usually she doesn't want a sandwich. Sometimes she wants a particular bento container. She's very specific and knows what exactly what she wants! Sometimes it makes me crazy but I know these traits will take her far in life. She may have even got a bit of that from me so I can't really complain. I'll post 2 of  hers separately tomorrow.
