The kids have been continuing to help me pack lunches this week, which is great because they have been clean plating these kid choice lunches. On Monday, Lily made a yogurt mix with frozen berries, lemon zest (she wanted to do some zesting), and honey. She also chose her sides: a banana, a crispy rice roll cut in half and some peanut butter filled pretzels.

Iain, on the other hand, went with what I call “The Elvis Special”: plain yogurt with peanut butter, bananas and a generous drizzle of honey. This is one of my favorite yogurt snacks. His sides were similar to Lily’s but he also threw in a little tangerine.

For lunch today, the kids made almost exactly the same thing: a big fruit salad with grapes, watermelon, kiwi and tangerine. They both made a trail mix with smoky almonds, Cheez-Its (left over from our holiday road trip: don’t judge me), and pretzels (Lily used Butter Snaps and Iain used those yummy peanut butter filled ones). They both packed some carrots as well. Those kids make some good looking lunches!
