Good morning, and welcome to another Fun Food Friday! As is usual in my Friday blog posts, there is a linky at the bottom of this post, so if you’ve written any foodie posts, whether it be toddler meals, creative cakes, lovely lunches or a yummy recipe you’ve blogged, do feel free to join in and add your link! I try to comment on and tweet every post that’s linked up, and I pin them all to my special Fun Food Friday Pinterest board too.
Small Child has been studying Space as part of his school topic this term. I like to occasionally theme his lunches around what he is studying at school, so today I'm sharing a fun space alien themed lunch that I made for him to match his space theme. This lunch was really quick and simple to throw together.
In this lunch (packed in the Yumbox Panino) he had a tortilla wrap, which I filled with baby leaf spinach, shredded roast chicken and a little mayo. I rolled up the wrap and cut in half with a zig-zag pattern, adding eye picks and bone picks to turn them into funny aliens. I popped them into the box along with a silicone lettuce leaf. On the side he had raw carrot stars, an alien Babybel (with circles cut from the wax to make an eye, and polka-dot pick antennae), half a kiwi fruit cut to look like a star (you can find full instructions for getting this effect here), and some grapes, which I topped with a cute little monster/alien cupcake ring.
