Lunchpiration (Feb. 23rd 2019)

Hello everyone!

Here’s my weekly “lunchpiration” post in which I share what I packed for my kindergartener’s lunch for the previous week.  As a reminder, the lunches have to:

  • include a snack (school requirement)
  • be peanut-free (school requirement)
  • not require a microwave (school requirement)
  • be diverse (Charles’ requirement)
  • not contain any disposable wrappers (in line with our zero waste philosophy)

And now, without further ado, here are the lunches I packed for my lovely 6 year old last week.


Snack: plain Greek yogurt with maple syrup and homemade granola. Lunch: Pollock filled onigiris, bell pepper strips, heart-shaped Monterey Jack cheese, half a kiwi and mini apple butter tart.
Snack: rippled carrot rounds with mozzarella cheese strips.  Lunch: Ham & cheese sandwiches in homemade pita bread, bell pepper strips and a double chocolate cookie.
Snack: Ham and kiwi cubes.  Lunch: Butternut squash raviolis and a homemade chocolate bear paw cookie.
Snack: Pineapple chunks and Monterey Jack cheese.  Lunch: Raw chopped cauliflower salad with iceberg lettuce, pickled carrots, chopped bell pepper, a hard-boiled egg and ranch dressing.  Mini chocolate chip muffin for dessert.
Snack: Cottage cheese with maple syrup and granola.  Roasted veggie (broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower and red bell pepper) sandwich on a ciabatta bun, pineapple chunks, mozzarella hearts and a mini vhocolate chip muffin.

That’s it!  Please let me know if you would like the recipe for any of the individual elements and I’ll be happy to share.  Also, if you would like to join in and share your own “lunchpiration” ideas, feel free to share a link via the comments section.

Where do you turn to for inspiration when packing lunches?
