Lunch Made Easy: An Apple A Day...

Little Miss loves making SunButter & Honey Apple Sandwiches. So, I thought I'd make her an fun apple themed bento box to go with one of her favorite sammies for Monday's lunch.

School is on Spring Break, but she'll be enjoying this "apple a day" EasyLunchboxes lunch with her sitter. 

An apple shaped cookie cutter and SurfSweets Top 10 Allergen Free Gummy Worm is a simple way to add some allergy friendly fun to an otherwise plain looking sandwich:

Lunch Made Easy: What came first, the fish or the fish stick?

This has been another hectic week of busy schedules, late nights, birthday parties, me not feeling well, and Little Miss has Girls on the Run practice twice a week.

So lunches have been simple... quick... but still fun & nutritious, with little added touches thanks to our bento supplies of food picks and cutters, as well as, Lunchbox Love Notes

If you've missed our lunch pictures from this week, make sure you're following our social media outlets since if they don't get blogged, they get posted with a photo on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

Lunch Made Easy: Mini Corndog Muffins {Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly}

Mini Corndog Muffins is something Little Miss and I love making. They're great little finger food items for appetizers, party snacks, and even packed up for school lunches.

Corndog... Corn Dogs... however you spell it, the fact remains the same, they're a fun food for kids! (And let's be honest, adults too.)

I shared our gluten free & allergy friendly recipe for them about a year ago, along with a lunch post on using leftovers

They're simple, quick, easy to make. They only take 15 minutes to prep & bake! Best of all, they freeze great so you can make them ahead for lunches or meals in the future.

{Charlotte's Web} Book Character Dress-Up Day + School Lunch!

Today is a special day at school for Little Miss: It's Book Character Dress-Up Day!

This is something her school does every year and all the kids (and staff) look forward to it. 

This year, Little Miss had three choices she narrowed down and finally decided to be Fern from Charlotte's Web

Not only did we make her a fun costume/ outfit to fit the part, I had to make a Charlotte's Web themed lunch to go with it.

Lunch Made Easy: Homemade Lunchable with SunButter & Jelly #AllergyFriendly #GlutenFree

One of the best and easiest school lunch ideas are Homemade Lunchables.  

It doesn't always have to be with cheese and meat slices either. For Tuesday's lunch, I made one for Little Miss with SunButter & Jelly. That was she can spread them on her crackers all by herself and enjoy!

Lunch Made Easy: Celebrate Pi Day! 3.14

Little Miss is off school this week Thursday and Friday, so her classroom is celebrating Pi Day today instead! 

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th, aka 3.14 - get it? ;)

Her class is having a math filled day and pie to eat (she'll have safe pie provided by her Mama, of course). Since I was already doing some baking for her pie treats for class, I figured I bust out my Pie Pop maker and include some fun in her lunch box as well with these adorable SunButter & Jelly filled Pie Pops! They're Gluten, Nut, Dairy, Egg, & Soy Free

Little Lunch Lessons: What is Purim? #TuesdayTeachings

In case you missed my post last week, I shared a gluten free & top 8 allergy free Hamantaschen recipe. Hamantaschen is a traditional Jewish cookie enjoyed at Purim. This year, Purim begins at sunset on March 15th and ends at nightfall on the 16th.

I love teaching Little Miss about different religions and beliefs, especially because good friends of ours are Jewish and I want her to understand and respect their traditions - just as I would want the same from their children, towards us. 

Little Miss loves the story from the Bible about Esther. We even did a "Little Lunch Lesson" on her story previously (you can view that HERE). So I wanted to continue with our lessons from baking the cookies, and carry it into her #TuesdayTeachings school lunch for today:
