I have been snapping photos of our lunches lately.
See, we started to fall into a little bit of a pb+j rut. Which my kids don't mind at all,
but I had a little mama guilt over the whole thing.
So I thought it was time to expand a little and share it here.
I know I could always use new, fresh ideas for kid friendly fare.
So if you have some super yummy, nutritious go-tos,
my kids appreciate straight forward, uncomplicated food.
sliced cheddar, blueberries, buttered wheat toast, almonds and carrot sticks.
cream cheese sandwiched between mini 12 grain crackers, cashews, dried blueberries, apple slices and oj.
apparently it worked, because my 4 year old asked me for the recipe.
orecchiette pasta with jarred marinara, cream cheese and parmesan and apple slices.
shaped pasta is always popular and my kids love the cream cheese/marinara combo.
cheesy toast, almonds, dried cranberries, bananas and milk.
cheesy broccoli scrambled eggs, buttered toast and milk.
eggs are my super easy go to, and my kids will eat almost any vegetable I throw in.
(they will not, however, eat the very same vegetable sitting plainly on their plate.
at least not without one of us losing our minds in the process.)
ham and cheese roll ups and carrot sticks
(steamed carrots for the littler two)
Even though pb+j is what they'd choose for every meal,
all of these meals were a huge success!
I am going to keep taking photos, if for nothing more than a little accountability,
and I'll share them here now and then for those who need a little inspiration.
What's on your menu this week?
