So, if the goal, is half fruits and vegetables, why would we put sandwich in the big part of the lunch box? Not today! Veggies can be fun too. Send a little dip with your raw vegetables, and they just might get eaten up! This lunch box doesn’t even have a sandwich. We decided on homemade pita crisps and cheese, much like la “Lunchable” would pack. We used some heart cutters for the veggies and sandwich. A crinkle cutter for the cucumbers. And we made our radishes into flowers.
Doesn’t that just make you want to go eat lunch?
