fun food friday: school, here we come!

My sweet little Kirsten is starting school in just 5 days. Here in Canada we have junior kindergarten, which means my 4-year old will be starting school all day, 5 days a week. I know she’s going to love it, learn so much, and make great friends. I’m a little sad that my baby is growing up, but it’s good. I made her a school-themed lunch and she absolutely loved it. It was really easy to make and the kiddos ate it all up. Here’s how I made it:

Peanut butter sandwich cut into apple shape with homemade strawberry jam spread on the outside. A piece of crust for the stem and a sliver of green apple for a leaf.

1 silicone cup filled with red and green sliced apples, and 1 silicone cup filled with yogurt. I used red heart sprinkles and green easter eggs on the yogurt. They were supposed to look like apples and leaves. I don’t know.

Then I cut fruit leather hearts and sliced off the bottom (messily I might add) to try to make them look like apples. I used chocolate sprinkles for the stems and green easter egg sprinkles for the leaves – although in the picture, it is really difficult to see.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    awwww this is so cute and perfect for back to school. You are the best mom. Does this mean you get to pack her cute lunches like this everyday for school now. I bet all the kids are going to want to trade lunches with her. I’ll keep you in my prayers for a great first day of school.

    Happy Weekend

    I just wanted to say THANKS for the peanut/nut-free bento ideas! My daughter’s preschool is peanut/nut-free; she stays for lunch only one day a week, but they have a snack every day. I need ideas for both lunch AND snack, because she loves her PB sammies and peanuts. *sigh* I’m trying to make her lunches fun so she doesn’t notice the lack of peanut butter. ;)
