School Lunches: Week 2

Week 2 of kindergarten is under our belts. I'm feeling more comfortable with the routine & the morning rush.

 LB often comes home with leftovers in her lunch box, and she tells me that she doesn't have enough time to finish everything. I'm not sure how much time they are given. At first I thought it might be because she talks a lot, but she said they're not allowed to talk when they are eating. She usually opens her lunchbox in the car to finish on the way home, which is fine with me. I hope she is getting enough fuel to keep her going during the day. (worried mama here)

I think I forgot to take a picture of Monday's lunch, so I only have four to share. And I realized after sharing last week that I need to work on my food photography skills. I'm such a work in progress.

Tuesday: carrot sticks, sliced peaches, peanut butter & jelly on whole wheat, 2 pumpkin cookies. Snack: almond butter balls & raisins


Wednesday: (LB wanted to show off the letters they are working on in phonics) mozzarella cheese on whole wheat, peeled clementine, black bean brownie, raisins. Snack: almond butter balls

 Thursday: Graham crackers, cheese stick, peeled clementine, Angry Birds cheese crackers, grapes. Snack: almonds butter balls & raisins

Friday: watermelon, Angry Birds Graham crackers, grapes, cheese stick, leftover basmati rice. Snack: homemade granola bar

Have a great weekend!


  1. Good looking lunches, But, wouldn't work in our school - too many nuts!

    Also beware watermelon, it goes bad fast if the classroom is hot.

  2. Maybe you can ask her teacher about lunch? Sometimes it is very short. What is the picture on the "i" card?
