Friday Featured Lunch 2.13.15

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.

Birthday Lunch

Here is this week’s featured lunch (which was C’s special birthday lunch) packed in a Planet Box. The photo on the right was taken a couple of years ago when I wrapped his birthday lunch in wrapping paper. Just another fun little birthday lunch idea for you.

Turkey & Cheese Sandwich (cut out using a Lunch Punch birthday cake sandwich cutter)= 17 carbs
Confetti Rolls (1 slice of bread, thinned out with a rolling pin, spread with 1/2 T. of whipped cream cheese, and sprinkled with 1/4 t. sprinkles, rolled up and sliced into “sushi” rolls)= 14 carbs
Fresh Fruit (strawberries, blueberries, pineapple & kiwi)= 9 carbs
Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps= 7 carbs
Carrots= 2 carbs

Lunch Total= 49 carbohydrates
