Back to school is in full swing! I can't help but notice all my friend's kids going back to school, with their cool new backpacks, new clothes and big smiles. One question that may come up is do I pack a lunch or participate in the school lunch program? Maybe you do a mixture of both like my mom did growing up. Either way, I have a fun new lunch your little one may love.
It turns out there are hundreds of options for packing lunches, and really cute ideas from butterfly sandwiches to polar bears, to SkinnyPop Popcorn for kids and mom. While I don't have any of my own, I do have 3 amazing step sons, one with a veracious appetite whom I've cooked for numerous times and had "dance-worthy" memorable results. What is on the menu? Homemade Pizza Lunchables. Growing up, this was my favorite lunchable! Hands down, give me the pizza. Even though it was ultra-processed, I wanted it. This is a healthier spin on the original with options along the way so you control what goes in their precious bodies. The crust is pretty basic / bland, so feel free to add Italian spices or more flavoring to the dough if you'd like!
The DIY Lunchable is composed of:
I took a rectangular Tuppaware, added a smaller one that fit inside with 2 silicone cups. One cup had sauce, the other cup had vegan cheese. Add the pizza crust, some fruit, a treat and your favorite beverage and you are there. Maybe even add a love note and toss in SkinnyPop Popcorn's Mini Cakes.
