This week is Small Child’s last week of school before the Easter holidays, and he only has 3 days of school before he breaks up so I decided to celebrate Easter a little early in his lunchboxes. Today’s lunch was pretty simple, so was very quick to put together.
In this lunch Small Child has a pitta bread, stuffed with roast chicken & lettuce, with a little light mayo. Before stuffing it, I cut the pitta in half with a sharp knife in the shape of a zig-zag, in an attempt to make it look like a cracked egg. On the side he had some black grapes and carrot flowers topped with a cute bunny pick, a pretzel stick ‘nest’ and a Babybel cheese with a little bird cut from the wax to decorate.
For dessert he had a kiwi fruit cut in half with a zig-zag to look like an egg and decorated with a couple of little chicken picks, plus some mixed dried fruit sprinkled around them. He also had a couple of egg halves made from frozen organic yoghurt. I used an egg shaped silicone mould to freeze them in – a quick tutorial on freezing yoghurt shapes can be found here.
I hope Small Child enjoyed his ‘egg-citing’ lunch (sorry, couldn’t resist)!
