Lunch Round-up: All About Variety

Here are some recent school lunches packed in my new favorite lunchboxes.

Iain was complaining recently that he was tired of peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. Say what?! So, I decided to mix things up with a peanut butter and apple sandwich. I also drizzled on some honey and sprinkled some cinnamon on those apples to give the sandwich an extra burst of Fall flavor.

Leftover pancakes are always a kid-favorite lunch when spread with peanut butter and Nutella. Yes, that combo is okay when sandwiched between some blueberry pancakes.

This was an easy end of the week lunch: a little cheese pizza roll up with applesauce, carrots and chunks of Asian pear.

You could call this “Mom Has a Little Piece of Leftover Pie Crust and Is Feeling Motivated Lunch.” Yep, I actually made little apple pies for lunch last week. Now the kids want more apple pies for lunch.

And, finally, today’s lunch is a merry mixup of plain yogurt sweetened with marmalade and honey, a juicy kiwi, a granola bar, a mini sweet pepper, a mini cucumber, a Hebrew National hot dog (the only hot dog worth eating, in my opinion), and a Babybel gouda. Fancy!
