Making Lunch Fun, One Box at a Time

ben·tol·o·gy (ben t äləjē) Noun : The study of making nutritious and fun lunches for my daughters.

I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

Santa and Rudolph

I made these doughnuts for the girls to take to a Christmas party this weekend.  (Thanks Pinterest!) As you may have seen, I've made the snowman doughnuts in the girls' lunches before.  My youngest specifically asked me if I'd make one of the Rudolph ones for her lunch.   

I've made quite a few reindeer sandwiches so far this year so I didn't want to go with a strictly reindeer theme.  What goes better with Rudolph than Santa?  So, pulling lots of inspiration from Michelle at Creative Foods (AGAIN!), I made this lunch:

  • 2 circle-shaped sandwiches (stacked) decorated to look like Santa using strawberry fruit leather, white whole grain bread and sprinkles.
  • Broccoli with ranch and a present pick
  • Blackberries with a "Merry Christmas" pick
  • Mini chocolate doughnut decorated to look like Rudolph using an M&M, icing eyes and pretzels
Here are some of the items, or similar items, that I used when creating this lunch:
