This lunch had a 'car' theme, after Small Child requested that I use some traffic themed picks sent over to us from the US by the lovely Shannon at Molly's Lunchbox. I once again packed a smaller lunch with a snack for after school - this 'format' seems to be working out well, especially now that the weather has warmed up, as we usually head to the park for a run around straight after school when it is sunny.
In this lunch Small Child had a mixture of wholemeal and white pitta bread, cut into car shapes and decorated with 'wheels' cut from German sausage slices. He had a pot of organic houmous to dip them in. On the side he had some organic raw carrot 'wheels' and some more German sausage slices, rolled up and skewered on polka-dot picks in traffic light colours. I finished the lunch with the traffic picks to decorate.
I used some mini car shaped snack pots for his snack, filled with mini pretzels, organic yoghurt with grape wheels, and some organic mixed vine fruits with a few dark chocolate chips thrown in for a treat.
Small Child was very happy with his car themed food for the day!
