Willow's Lunch

 

On Thursdays mornings I go to church and be in the nursery with the kids while the Moms go to women’s prayer meeting. Usually it’s just one or two kids but I take mine with me too. It gives me time to just sit and play with them and, though I struggle sometimes to get out the door on time for it (like this morning!), I enjoy it.

Today I forgot to pack a snack for Willow so she had the snacks at church which were animal/Graham crackers and cheerios. I have to say, while these aren’t extremely unhealthy, I try to limit how much of these kinds of foods she has (she has a tendency to go cracker mad!) and prefer to use her snack times to get in some of her daily five. She had a lot of crackers too this morning plus a little of my lunch, so I gave her just a couple of turkey (with cheese on top) sandwiches cut out with a leaf shaped cutter and some apples - also leaf-shaped. Took approximately 3 minutes to make (I had the nori features already stamped out). She ate it all :)

What a lucky girl to have such cute(and tasty) lunches prepared for her! :)

Kelly Polizzi said...

KACY sorry for the late response. I just slice off a few pieces of apple big enough to stamp out and then use a leaf cookie cutter to do it.

Sonoma Bento said...

These are amazing little sandwiches. I love their expressions and the leaves of apple, too. :)

Liza said...

Adorable! I love the leaves. So cute!
