Lunch for The Boy: 8.29.12

Back to School!!! 

For those of you who don't know, during the school year, I post The Boy's lunches and The Girl's lunches daily, in separate blog posts.  The Boy's lunches contain carbohydrate counts because he is a Type 1 diabetic, and the school nurse is able to check the blog to see what I packed for him, check it against what he has actually eaten, and give him the correct dose of insulin so he can go about his day.

On to the lunch!

I will likely not be making lunches this cute all year, but one of my past-times this summer was amassing quite a nice collection of gorgeous food picks (from my lovely Bento Blogger & Friends group... it's been like an addiction...)

But... today's is mighty cute!

Apple slices: 4g, Sunflower seeds: 3g, raisins: 8g

For snack, The Boy has half an apple (sliced thinly, because he is missing quite a few teeth right now, and chomping on big apple slices isn't easy!), some Naturebox bbq sunflower seeds in a covered silicone cup, and a few raisins in a new favorite of mine, a little Lego box.  Seriously, I am in love with these boxes... they also have a bigger one, and they both fit into my beloved EasyLunchboxes!

Watermelon: 5g, yogurt: 20g, Cheezits: 10g, carrots & ranch: 4g, fig: 10g, bus crackers: 10g, cheese: 1g, cookie: 8g

His lunch is watermelon, Scrabble Cheez-its, carrots in the oval container, with a strawberry cookie from friend who brought it from Italy on top, along with ranch for the carrots in a round covered container,  a NatureBox dried fig, some homemade crackers in bus shapes, a Cabot cheese package, and some homemade Greek yogurt with a frozen yogurt dragonfly - tutorial on how to do that here and here.)  I will try popping the yogurt into the yogurt tomorrow morning, because I packed some lunches with frozen yogurt shapes in them last night and they were completely melted and not recognizable by lunch time... here's for hoping!

Pin It!
