...BUT I just HAD to do a spot on Keitha - I adore her Storybook Themed Lunches she makes for her son, Boogs. His lunches are inspired by the books they read before bed the evening before. Each night, she reads two books to him and he reads one back to her. I just love this idea. Reading is something Little Miss and I do together every evening before bed, as well.
The details of the giraffe PBandJ sandwich just blow me away! Each food item in the lunch is a fact found in Dedan Saves the Day: Fruit leather tongue which can be 18 inches long, giraffes eat up to 75 lbs a day of leaves (represented by spinach), twigs (carrots sticks and Chex Mix), and buds (kiwi), baby giraffes drink their mother's milk (yogurt).
Another lunch I love is the one she made for "The Going to Bed Book" shown here. His lunch is a rising Babybel moon with marshmallow and pretzel barbell, strawberry stars, salad with cucumber boat, and cheese sleeping on a sandwich bed. How cute is that?!
You can check out Keitha's blog Keitha's Chaos to follow her weekly round up of their story book lunches. An excellent way to incorporate reading, education, and healthy eating at the same time. :)
