I’ve noticed that sometimes the kiddos eat more of their lunches if the food is presented in little bites. Of course, finger food is pretty fun. They also like deconstructed sandwiches: all the normal sandwich ingredients served as individual pieces instead of made up into a big sandwich. That’s exactly what I decided to do for Wednesday’s lunch: I cut up some leftover grilled teriyaki pork tenderloin and served it with baby dill pickles, a couple of slices of homemade bread with yummy Irish butter and some delicious strawberries, grapes and carrots.

I continued with the small bites theme in today’s lunch, which had slices of ham and cheddar cheese served with a side of veggie crackers. The kiddos just love mom-made Lunchables. Unlike real Lunchables, mom-made Lunchables have all sorts of fresh fruits and veggies.

  1. I love looking at the lunches you prepare. They are so colorful and appealing. I am glad you are cultivating healthy habits in your kids and they are growing up knowing what real food is. Best of luck with this work!
