Salami “Sandwich”

Deconstructed Salami Sandwich for Daphne. Both my kids aren’t interested in the bread so I swapped it out for some ritz crackers. Grab this Lunchbot Duo here. And the silicone reusable cups here. These make it easy to clean and also to divide your Duo into more compartments if needed!

Salami, Mini Cucumbers, Black Olives (pitted of course) and Ritz crackers.

Sandwich & Fun Size Veggies

#snackoftheweek Every now and then I try making the kids a sandwich. They really only want bread with Nutella on it usually! But this week it’s turkey and cheese with some finger food veggies. This method of cutting the veggies to “fun size” is making a huge difference for Daphne’s digestion. Wish I had tried it with Dylan. I used to give him veggies and he was never into it so I eventually gave up. If only I had a cute little @Lunchbot to put it in back then!

Lunch for Little Ones

Bento Boxes For Lunch

For lunch this week, I packed my kids a bento box of some of their favorites.  I found these bento boxes on Amazon and chose them because they were reasonably priced, seemed sturdy and not too heavy.  I would say they are a little heavy for my 3 year old to carry but fine for my 6 year old.  They also have a dip compartment that I thought was neat.  (I put mandarin oranges in it).

Salami & Cheese Bento Box

  • Salami rolled up
  • Cheddar cheese cubes
  • Tostitos whole wheat scoops
  • Mandarin organes
  • Mini cucumber slices

You can find the bento box here.



This week’s snack box is a “dessert” theme.  In Daphne’s I used a kosher chocolate spread that’s nut free (and also dairy free) because her pre-school is nut-free.  Dylan has standard Nutella.

Fruit Dipped in Chocolate

  • Brown rice cake
  • Welch’s fruit snacks, 90 calorie pack (it’s very small, about a handful of gummies)
  • Sliced strawberries and blueberries
  • A silicone insert filled with chocolate spread (for easier cleaning)

You can get the boxes here and the silicon liners here.  The boxes are recommending by pre-schools because they are easy to open for little hands.  They are plastic so they aren’t thermal and I did have one break on me pretty quickly.  But, they are inexpensive so I use them as a backup to my Lunchbots.  The liners are great for making extra compartments in your bento boxes and also for items that are a little messy.

Pizza Boxes! 

October 17, 2017

I affectionately call this one the “pizza box” even though there’s no tomato sauce!  For my kids snack this week, here’s what I packed:

  • String Cheese
  • Turkey Pepperoni (which they love!)
  • A mini bell pepper
  • Black olives
  • Crackers

The boxes themselves are from Lunchbots and you can order them here.

Hers and Hers snack boxes for tomorrow. Daphne’s got some cheese and fruit in hers and I’ve got a shake Day approved box with Mary’s Gone Crackers. I have a marathon day tomorrow of training calls so I know having my snack prepared in advance will make it so much easier to stay on track!
