Day 144 – Bagel and Fruit

It doesn’t get much easier than the classic PB&J, like in yesterday’s lunch. Except for maybe today’s lunch – Bagel and butter. We don’t use a lot of butter in this house…well, actually it’s Earth Balance Soy-Free Dairy-Free Buttery Spread…a whole tub will last us many months. We almost never have bagels either. However, when we do have bagels, M likes them simply with butter. And NOT toasted. At least this is a whole wheat bagel. Lots of healthy fruit and veg on the side and he will be one happy camper at lunch time!

Day 120 – Bagel, Strawberries & Peppers

Today, M’s getting a plain bagel with Earth Balance buttery spread and grape jelly. His sides are all about his favorite color – red!

I know many of you have already started your school year.  M doesn’t go back until next Wednesday, but here are a few pictures from his lunches last year to get you started.Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 2.07.10 PM

Do you have little ones back to school already? What have they been enjoying for lunch so far??  I’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
