Halloween lunch!

October 3, 2016

I love me some fall time, I love me some October, and I love me some Halloween! Who’s with me??? Now that I have a toddler I have every excuse in the world to make a whole silly little lunch based around Halloween! HOORAY!!!! Here’s what’s for lunch in this house comes October 31, seriously easy and super fun for the kiddos (and me!) You probably already have most of these things in your house which is a super plus!

Crazy Apple Teeth!

What you’ll need:

-Apple

-Mini Marshmallows

-Peanut Butter

It’s easy as pie folks, slice the apples, spread peanut butter on apples, place mini marshmallows on peanut butter side of one of the slices and then place the other slice on top! Super duper cute and Karis thought they were hilarious!

Candy Corn Fruit Kabob!

Here’s what you’ll do, cut the fruit, pineapple being the biggest, banana the smallest, place them on the stick! BAM, done! SO cute!

Spider Sandwich!

What you’ll need:

-Bread

-Peanut Butter

-Jelly

-Pretzel Sticks

-Rasins

This one is pretty complicated, only the truly devote mothers can manage.  Cut bread in circle, make PB&J sandwich, shove in some pretzel sticks as legs, and the hardest step yet! Place raisins on top as eyes! O MAN! Hard stuff! NOT, but your toddler thinks your totally awesome and that’s what it’s all about!!

Super easy, totally cute and a little bit of fun for your toddler during Halloween time!! Let me know if you try any or if you think of any other fun Halloween snacks!

This picky eater found a winner!

Who else has THE pickiest eater around!? Karis wants absolutely nothing to do with a single vegetable, fruit is her friend on a good day.  On a bad day though, forget about it!! Fruit snacks all day ever day would be her breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack option if I let her choose! To say the least, it is super frustrating! This being said, when I find a new snack that she actually LOVES and it’s healthy, the heavens open up, and insert the HALLELUJAH with bright lights shining down, you know the drill…

 

Gerber Lil’ Beanies is my newest discovery and Karis ate half the can before I even realized what was happening! BUT i’m not even mad about it because they are baked with navy beans, have 2 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fiber.  That’s right, my kid is eating navy beans and doesn’t even know it!! muhahahahaha ALSO, they sell them at Target which means I can pick up a new can about 5 times a week, well because that’s about how often I’m at that wonderful store that takes all my money. So let’s talk about a win-win for both mama and picky eating toddler! No more having to say no all day long about wanted her 17th bag of fruit snacks. Score!!!

SO, do you have a toddler?? Do you have a picky eater?? Are YOU a picky eater??? I don’t even care, just RUN yourself down to target and get some Lil’ Beanies for your little bean! Or your big bean, maybe your husband? I don’t judge…
