I do my best to come up with balanced meals that pack as much nutrients into them as I can. Sneaking veggies into meals has become a fine art for me.
I'm also a firm believer in cute child size bowls, fun dip cups (silicone baking cups work great), and easy to use utensils. I think they make meal time look pretty and more pleasurable. We have a mix of cups and bowls and utensils from IKEA, Nova Natural and Diaso (a Japanese dollar store in Richmond BC).
Today's lunch box adventure included:
- mini quiches with canned wild salmon, broccoli and cheddar cheese mixed in and a mini cup of ketchup for dipping.
- a fruit salad consisting of strawberries, kiwi, grapes, banana and blueberries with a squirt of lime juice and a dot of maple syrup for flavour.
- water to drink.
