After I sent this lunch, I worried I didn’t include enough protein so I overcompensated the rest of the week. My husband bought a whole pineapple at the grocery store and he cut it while our son watched. The pineapple in our lunches was fresh. Daycare menu: Meat & cheese lasagna, pineapple bits, green beans with fruit and crackers and American cheese as snacks.
The kid was not that crazy about the pasta. Day care menu: Tuna with pasta, diced pears, peas with yogurt and fruit as snacks.
That morning I was out of ideas. Day care menu: Cheese ravioli, strawberry yogurt, diced peaches, green beans with fruit and yogurt as snacks.
I find that it’s very easy to hard boil eggs in the morning. Day care menu: Chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, applesauce, diced carrots with fruit and blueberry muffins for snacks.
I’m always trying to find a new twist on a “sandwich.” Here I used gluten free crackers for petite salmon and spinach sandwiches. Lots of salmon and sardines this week to help combat my vitamin D deficiency…actually I should probably see a doctor over break to make sure my levels have been going up.
I have always enjoyed sardines. To eat the kiwi, I packed a knife and spoon so I could cut it in half and then scoop out the yummy insides.
