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 a Planet Box:
Open-Face Jack-O’-Lantern Sandwich (1 slice bread, 2 slices turkey, 1 slice of cheese with jack-o’-lantern face cut in it)= 9 carbs
Creepy Fingers (2 pretzel rods, 4 slices turkey, and two slivered almonds)= 12 carbs
Ghost Hard-boiled Egg= 1 carb
Candy Corn= 9 carbs
Carrots= 3 carbs
Grapes= 14 carbs
Lunch Total= 48 carbohydrates
