Johnny Appleseed Day

I struggled a bit on this one. I didn't want to put actual apples in her bento because they'll be eating lots of apples at school this week.

So she has:
-Apple straws
-Apple sauce with organic sprinkles
-Fruit shaped fruit snacks
-Nutella sandwich with a cheese apple!

The colors are a little bland but apple colors are a bit bland....

Now hopefully I can get more creative as this apple week goes on!!!

Suggestions would be more than welcome!


  1. I LOVE how you're making lunch thematic with what she's learning! Drive those lessons home, Mama! :)

  2. Thanks! Some of them are really hard! Like the last two weeks?! Doctor and Dentists?! FAIL on my part! But I am looking for FIRE and POLICE themed cookie cutters now if anyone has any ideas!!

  3. I don't know how you feel about gummy worms, but if you cut an apple in half with the cut side on the plate you can cut a hole in the apple and poke the end of the gummy worm into it. I have done this and used 1 baby spinach leaf to make an apple leaf (and chrystian even ate the spinach leaf)

    That cheese apple really turned out great! Did you use a cookie cutter?

  4. How cute! Taia can't eat gummy worms because of the food coloring but I bet I could find some naturally colored gummy worms!!

    Yup- it took me FOREVER to find one but I finally got one at Jo Ann's. I would've preferred a larger one but couldn't find one.
