Mornings have been very rushed and I've gotten into a PB&J rut (which my son is happy about). Looking forward to less rushed mornings and less lunches this summer. Also rejoined Momables for some new inspiration.
Let my son pick the cutter and he always picks the dolphin cutter.
Cracker stackers for Tuesday
I packed Wednesday's lunch (baseball Wednesday) in our small Goodbyn - he loves this box. I don't use it very often mostly because its not easy to pack with an icepack. But its a fun box and I love just having a single container.
Wednesday's snack - banana for morning and Pirate's Booty in the baseball Lunchskins
Monday's Earth Day lunch I already shared in my Earth Day post so only 4 lunches here.
The puzzle cutter always makes a fun lunch.

When ever I ask my son to pick the cutter he always picks the dolphin cutter. Trader Joe's freeze dried bananas and Love Crunch granola.
A simple star themed lunch with a star sandwhich cutter and a star pick with the pickles. My son loves strong flavors so pickles are always a hit. It can be hard to find them without high fructose corn syrup but I do have a few sources.
I'm very brand picky for taste, quality and ingredients. I thought I would start sharing some of the foods that we buy. For PB&J we've been using the Santa Cruz organic Peanut Butter and Cascadian Farms organic grape jelly, both from Whole Foods. And the so delicious Love Crunch, also from Whole Foods - granola with dark chocolate, strawberries and raspberries makes a great snack.
In honor of Earth Day I made a simple earth themed lunch - circle sandwich with an edible marker to draw on the continents and fruit leather letters to spell EARTH. An of course a reusable bento box, EasyLunchboxes,
and a recycling themed Smartkin cloth napkin to reduce packaging and paper waste.
Sorry for the poor photo - I really need to work on improving my iphone photos.
I'm starting a short series on my blog today - 10 Eco-Friendly Changes We've Made in Our Home. I've gradually been making changes in our home that are good for the environment. I've found that many of these changes are also good for our health and many also save money.
Baseball sandwich cut with a round sandwich cutter and stitching drawn with a red edible market. I used my new baseball Lunchskins pouch. Rest of the lunch in a stainless steel LunchBots bento box
Yogurt and cheese stick. Yes, the expiration date says December but when I buy yogurts they go right in the freezer and into the lunchbox still frozen (they thaw by lunchtime) so the yogurt is still good.
