Anchors Aweigh

When I got home from work today, there was a box waiting for me at the door.  Yay!  My new set of Easy Lunch boxes has arrived.  Well, of course I had to promptly break them in.  As for the theme my daughter chose an anchor cookie cutter out of the cookie cutter drawer and voila a lunch was made.

Left side:  Lemon chicken soup in a boat silicone cup (my daughter loves to eat this stuff cold!), blue corn tortilla and ham sandwich, ham dolphins, and cherry tomatoes.

Top right:  Boat cucumbers and black olives.

Bottom right:  Grapes and fish shaped kiwi.

I am one of those people that don't like empty spaces in a lunch box.  However, I had to refrain from totally filling this box up as that would be to much food for my preschooler.  The beauty of the Easy lunch box is that it can grow with your child and you just need to adjust the amount of food packed inside.

  1. Very cute and creative. I know some kids don't like to eat food when they don't feel like eating but shaping it in such a way that can pick their curiosity is a good way to encourage them to eat. Works all the time.
