Kid Approved & Diabetic Friendly

Friday Featured Lunch 3.7.14

I pack my son a fresh school lunch every day. Each Friday, I pick one lunch from the week to share with you- the Friday Featured Lunch. These featured lunches are meant to give you inspiration of new things to make and try with your kids. Plus, all featured lunches include the carbohydrate breakdown of each food item, so that you can easily add/remove items to accommodate your child’s likes/dislikes.


Here is this week’s featured lunch packed in EasyLunchboxes:

Peanut Butter, Apple & Cinnamon Grilled Sandwich (spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on each bread slice, layer with thin apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon, butter other sides of bread and cook in a skillet like you would a grilled cheese sandwich) = 21 carbs
Snapea Crisps= 7 carbs
Yoplait Very Vanilla Yogurt= 8 carbs
Frozen Raspberries= 6 carbs
Apple Slices= 10 carbs

Lunch Total= 52 carbohydrates

  1. Just found your website and it is exactly what I have been looking for! My daughter was just diagnosed with type 1, and when I first started looking for good food ideas on the internet I was sooo overwhelmed! I just told my husband, ” I need a mom to just take a picture of good diabetic friendly food, and write all the carbs for me” And you did that! Thank you. I just need to know where you get all of your lunch bins? I recognized one of them (we have a similar from amazon with just the 3 compartments, but where did you get the others?)
