Candy Canes

It's hard to believe this is my last school lunch in 2011!! The girls are off school for the holidays starting tomorrow -- woo hoo!!!

  • Bagel sandwich on a mini whole wheat bagel with a provolone and cheddar candy cane.

  • Babybel with a candy cane cut out

  • Fruit salad (blueberries, raspberries, pineapple and strawberries) with a candy cane pick

  • Peas

  • Hershey Kisses*

* I was going to include a mini candy cane for dessert but I was afraid they wouldn't have time to finish it and would be forced to throw it away before going out for recess. In fear of that being traumatic, I opted for Hershey Kisses instead.


  1. So cute! LOVE how the babybel turned out! :)

  2. I love all your cute box meals! I even went out and bought some containers! (We've used them a few times and they've worked wonderful for car trips!) But I was wondering - when you cut out bread, cheese, etc, what do you do with the "scraps"? I'm a frugal Mom and wouldn't want to just throw them away.

  3. I try to cut so there are few scraps. If the scraps (especially cheese) are big enough, I save them for later use. If they are too small to save, we snack on them.
