Here are the lunches I packed for my son the past five days. You can check out week 1 here.
Day 1: Homemade Lunchables (Ritz crackers, cheddar cheese, turkey (or ham), diced watermelon, celery, pistachios, and gogurt.
Day 2: Sometimes you just need a classic. PB&J, carrot and celery sticks, apple, and Fridays are treat day for us so he got a package of cookies.
Day 3: Cheese quesadilla, gogurt and fruit salad (diced watermelon, apple, orange, and grapes…I just cut up whatever was in the fridge)
Day 4: Tortilla roll ups, green and red bell peppers, diced watermelon, and apple sauce.
To make the tortilla roll ups spread a thin layer of cream cheese all over a tortilla. Add a layer of spinach to the cream cheese leaving 1/2 inch of cream cheese showing (it will be the “glue” that holds everything together when you roll), add turkey or ham on top of the spinach and then roll. Cut with a sharp knife. I used plain cream cheese, but this would taste so good with onion and chive flavored cream cheese!
Day 5: Tuna sandwich (using this recipe), edamame, apple slices, and a romaine salad with tomatoes and almonds. (To keep the tuna sandwich safe I added a small icepack to his lunch box)
Here’s a tip for keeping apple slices from turning brown. You can also use 7up or Sprite, but I never have them on hand, so I always use the lemon juice.
