So now I have to pack lunches for him five days a week. At times they are simple lunches, some of which I've posted previously. There are some days that he packed his own lunches which are simple sandwiches or leftovers which he prefers over school lunch. Here are three fish themed lunches which Nikolai enjoyed sometime back.
The fist lunch was a pita for which I used a paring knife to remove a section to relocate forming the mouth and tail. I used a heart shape cutter to make the side fin of Mozzarella cheese and a candy eye. His sides were fish shaped watermelon slices cut with a small fish shaped cookie cutter in a silicone cup, tiny fish shaped cucumber above organic baby carrots, packed in an Easylunchboxes container. I also included a Lunchbox Love note with his lunchbox.
The second lunch was a fish created with circle and heart shaped cookie cutters; a larger heart cutter for the tail and a small heart to make the accents, Swedish fish and cheddar fish crackers are also in the main compartment. The sides were crinkle cut cucumber slices, organic baby carrots, seedless red grapes and orange slices. This lunch was packed in a Fit & Fresh container.
I love crinkle cut veggies and I have recently purchase a new crinkle cut knife although I already own several. This one is small in size and it's also ideal for Nikolai to use.
The third and last lunch was quite easy. The main compartment contains a pita cut into quarters (stacked) and topped with fish shaped cheddar cheese, organic granola bar cut into half and cheddar goldfish crackers in silicone cups. The sides were organic baby carrots, broccoli florets, Annie's organic fruit snacks, pineapple and watermelon pieces.
This lunch was packed in a leakproof Yumbox Panino.
Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack these lunches.
