Off to Market: School Lunch

I lost a bet to a friend of mine and now I have to make a super special lunch for him to bring his daughter at school. He is a single dad and doesn't have time to make her lunch. Normally she eats hot lunch from the cafeteria and she rarely has the luxury of a delicious sack lunch. So it's time to go off to market in search of the best lunch items for her.

She is in second grade and the meal must not have any nut products. I want the food to be far more glamorous than plain old peanut butter and jelly, so be sure to include your best recipes for kid friendly foods. Put them in the recipe database and tag them with, School Lunch. Save any other snacks or sweet extras that you come across in the Yum Market - once again tag them with School Lunch.

That lunch tote is *the* cutest. Haven't found another one that comes close.

Quesadillas are great for a fun lunch for kids! They're a blank canvas that is easily timmed to any shape. It's just the same as making a grilled Cheese sandwitch, but use tortillas instead of bread. Fill with cheese, ham, turkey or anything else that you know the child likes. (Let it cool a bit to set before you start cutting.) Select a simple shape from a coloring book and just trace completely through with a sharp knife. You can make butterflies, flowers, clowns, fish, rabbits... pretty much anything that the child is interested in. Let your imagination go wild! To really bring it over the edge - you can buy colored markers for food at stores like Michael's and color in the details... My grandkids love it when I make the lunches:)

If you find a cuter lunch box post it! We like the one Party's chosen, but if you find a better one, let us know!

Mine are up. I just assumed that all the lunch items would be placed in the pictured lunch box, or the childs actual lunch box, so I did not select one.

Brunette, was the episode with the candy sushi? That was a great idea for a lunch bag.

Rachael Ray had a great segment on her show a few months ago about really cool ideas for a kid's sack lunch! I will add some recipes to the database from her! :-)

What a fun idea! I will get thinking and see what I can come up with. The years of being a nanny will finally pay off for something. ;)
