Well, first to update on the salads yesterday. . . the kids did a great job! Natalie and Amelia still had some salad left but they finished it after school. I was shocked at how well an ice pack works. . .usually lettuce goes bad so quickly. That lunch will definitely go in the repeat file. Next time I’ll try adding some chickpeas too.
Even though I am showing my kids’ lunches, these ideas would be great for adults too! I know I would like the lunches. (Maybe not so much on the squeeze applesauce snacks…!)
Today’s lunch is Tortilla Roll-ups. I used a generous amount of hummus and some carrots, red peppers, mushrooms and spinach. I hope my kids aren’t disappointed when they don’t have toothpicks. Pretty sure the toothpicks are their favorite part of the roll-ups. I just didn’t feel comfortable sending toothpicks to kindergarten; kind of has disaster written all over it. I packed the roll-ups into a smaller container in two layers so they would hold together. I packed a few grapes as well, but this is likely more than my kids will be able to eat in one sitting.
Snack today is strawberry applesauce. Like I said yesterday, I love these squeeze containers. They are so simple to pack and easy for the kids to eat.
Have a great weekend!
