Even though the school year is over, I had to stay in lunch-making mode last week for dance camp: three days of serious dance fun for little girls (and one boy!). I knew my little dancer would need lots of fuel during dance camp, so I packed lunches full of fresh fruits and veggies. On day 1, I went with quesadillas, carrots, grape tomatoes and some superfruits: blueberries and cherries.

For day 3, I made protein-packed black bean and cheese baked taquitos, which I served with carrot sticks, a medley of the little dancer’s favorite Goldfish, and strawberries and blueberries.

My sweet little dancer had a fantastic time at dance camp. I’m not going to lie: I was a little jealous that I didn’t get to go to dance camp!
