Funny Faces

We're on Mid-Term break here. Woo Hoo! No early mornings for a whole week ^_^. Last week got so busy that I didn't have a chance to blog many lunches. Here are a couple of funny face lunches that I made for Amy & Rose.

Rose had veggies & dip, cantaloupe, pineapple. celery with peanut butter (and candy eyes), yellow pepper and a funny face ham sandwich. 

I went on a healthy eating grocery tour a couple of week's ago. I've changed a few things on in our diets, mainly in the reducing fat area. I get so focused on reading the labels for the carbohydrates and sugar when making decisions about what to choose that I forget to keep a check on the fat. I guess that's just from years of being PG and having TOTAL STRESS over my blood sugars. Well one change that we made was to switch to Bolthouse Farms salad dressing - their yogurt ranch is a hit with the kids and has only a fraction of the fat. Win! It's really tasty too, and I'm not even a Ranch lover.

Amy's lunch is similar. Way less veggies and crackers added. She's been pretty difficult with her food choices lately, we're getting back into our same lunch rut so soon into the year. Not sure what to do about it just yet. I'll likely experiment a bit over the break to try out some new lunchy items at home. She didn't like the new salad dresing - but she has yet to meet one that she likes. Also still not a salad eater, we're working on the deconstructed version first.

Fancy Sandwich Friday

Fancy Sandwich Friday on beneficial bento is back! I wanted to link two lunches this week so I made two separate posts. Click the button at the bottom of the post to jump on over and see some other Fancy Sandwich lunches.

Here's Amy's fancy sandwich lunch.

Amy has cucumbers and carrots, rice Chex, watermelon pieces and a turkey sandwich with wild carrot hair. The features are made from turkey, raisins, and apple peel. She had an apple for snack today and I peeled and sliced it this morning. The rest of the apple peel went to the guinea pigs :) She didn't eat most of the carrot hair though or the turkey eyes. I think she automatically thought the eyeballs were made from cheese! Silly girl.

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