Friday Featured Lunch 10.2.15

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.


Here’s this week’s featured lunch packed in an EasyLunchbox:

Mini Chicken & Waffle Sandwiches (8 mini waffles & 2 pieces Applegate Chicken Tenders cut in 1/2)= 35 carbs
Fresh Fruit (pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, grapes, kiwi)= 15 carbs
Fresh Veggies (grape tomatoes, carrots & green bell pepper strips)= 4 carbs

Lunch Total= 54 carbohydrates
