How is it already time to start thinking about school lunches again??! *cries*
We’re loving summer and not quite ready for the onslaught of homework and lugging backpacks in the morning. But alas, we’ve only got a couple weeks left. So, I might as well work on something to get everyone excited about it.
I came up with some more fun ideas to get your kid interested in lunch. Or at least stay seated more than 5 minutes before they bolt for the playground!
Vegetable, Bread, and Kielbasa Fondue
This is perfect for the kid who’s not really into sandwiches, but loves finger food and dipping! Shown are toasted bread cubes, celery, carrots, fully cooked kielbasa, with Thousand Island dressing. Mix it up with some Ranch instead, cucumbers, and bell peppers.
Inside-Out Sandwiches with Apple Slices and Trail Mix
This is ideal if you’ve got two lunches to prepare. Make the same sandwich, one on white bread and the other wheat. Then using a small cookie cutter, cut out a shape from the center and swap them! The trail mix includes, cheese and pretzel fish crackers, regular M&Ms, and raisins.
Corn Dog Muffins with Cheese Wands and Clementines
I just follow the directions on the Jiffy Corn Mix box and put a 1/3 of a hot dog slice on top before baking. Do this the night before and then just heat up in the morning. Buy a block of cheese, cut into cubes, and poke a piece of a pretzel stick in the center. Include your favorite fruit. My kids love the seedless Cuties!
