Loving a Lunch Guest #IBSD14

Loving Lunches
Hi! I'm Jackie from Loving Lunches, and I'm loving the opportunity to participate in my first International Blog Swap Day thanks to Digital Parents, Tots 100 and of course your very own Kirsty here at Hijacked by Twins.

I started making fun bento-inspired lunches for my daughter when she started daycare as I returned to part time work. Two years on I still enjoy making special lunches for her Kindergarten days as well as a few snack boxes to take out & about, although these days I'm packing for two. I also enjoy experimenting and playing in the kitchen and have been know to share a recipe or two.

I decided to make his & hers lunch boxes for Taylor & Isabella. Both these Decor Quarters include the same ingredients, presented slightly differently. One box is about half the amount of food I would send Miss M to daycare with when she was 2. Yes, we have been blessed with a good eater ^-^

Isabella has:
plain vanilla yoghurt with red grapes on decorative food picks (affiliate link)
Cheese 'fish' sandwich on white bread (the cutter is from this set of Lunch Punches. That's an affiliate link too) Sitting on a bed of rocket, which I thought looked a little like sea kelp, thank you Octonauts!
mandarin & grape flower in a silicon cup and half a kiwi fruit

Taylor has:
Same, but different
mandarin segmented with a grape & fun food pick in a silicon muffin mould. Half a kiwi fruit
Cheese 'fish' sandwich on white bread, in a bed of rocket
plain vanilla yoghurt with grapes on food picks (affiliate link)

These lunches were really quick & simple to put together once I had a plan, but I think they look so much more appealing than a traditional lunch box.  I'd love to hear what you think!

Don't forget to check out Kirsty's delicious recipe over on Loving Lunches, live now!

Details of my tools & toys can be found on this page.

  3. What beautiful lunches! I especially like the food picks. I'm not surprised you have good eaters, when you present meals like this.
