Friday Featured Lunch 10.24.14

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, a Halloween themed lunch, packed in a PlanetBox:

Mummy on a Stick (cut 1 slice of bread- crust removed, 3 slices turkey, & 1 slice of cheese into squares and thread onto a cake pop stick, secure two candy eyes with a tiny bit of honey)= 15 carbs
Strawberries= 4 carbs
Carrots= 2 carbs
Candy Corn (5 pieces)= 9 carbs
Cheese Balls= 4 carbs
Apple Pie Parfait (layer vanilla yogurt, finely diced apples, granola & sprinkle the top with cinnamon):
Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt= 13 carbs
Diced Apples= 3 carbs
Granola= 5 carbs

Lunch Total: 55 carbohydrates
