Last School Lunches for 2015

Our first school year has come to an end! I didn’t realise just how busy things get with a little one at school and preparing another for kinder next year. I’m pretty glad it’s holidays now and we can start watching Christmas movies, doing Christmas crafts and baking and of course driving around finding all the Christmas lights πŸŽ„ 

Without further ado here are the last lunchboxes of the school year:

   
Thursday Lunch: gingerbread silicone cup with shredded chicken, popcorn, apricot coconut ball, apple slices, pineapple and strawberry kabob, mini cacao and date balls, yoghurt covered sultanas, twiggy stick, babybel cheese and peas.

 
Friday Lunch: RUDOLPH! My favorite of the Christmas lunches. Rudolph sandwich and boiled egg, apple, peas, apple biscuit, yoghurt covered sultanas, grapes and strawberries and apple and cherry fruit leather in the reindeer rings.

   
Monday Lunch: coco2 candy cane sandwiches, cheese stars, strawberries, peas, bagel crisps, salami stick, boiled egg, grapes and watermelon balls.

 
Tuesday Lunch: leftover butter chicken, apple slices, cacao and raspberry popcorn, apple biscuit, peas, bagel crisps, watermelon and grapes.

   
Wednesday Lunch: my second favourite Christmas lunch. Coco2 Christmas tree sandwich, mini gingerbread people, watermelon kabob, apple slices, carrot stars and strawberries.

 
Thursday Lunch: Last day of Prep Lunch! My sons graduation day lunch has apple slices, twiggy stick, peas, fruit leather squares, babybel cheese, strawberries and coco2 star sandwiches.

  
As it was graduation day we had a special Christmas class party farewell and were asked to bring a plate. My son had requested something healthy because some kids might want fun healthy food…he’s so sweet sometimes! I made up the watermelon Christmas trees by buying a whole watermelon and cutting into large discs then going along with a Christmas tree cookie cutter making the shapes. I think they turned out really cute and they were a hit because the kids gobbled them all up! 

Is your school year almost at an end? Do you have a platter to make? Hopefully I’ve given you some healthy ideas to work with. It doesn’t have to be difficult to be cute 😊 stay tuned for healthy fun food over the holidays!
